Quiet and seasonal start to workweek

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) — Happy Monday, Utah! After a chilly start to the day, we’ll warm up steadily into the afternoon with temperatures climbing to near seasonal averages.

For most, highs will range in the 30s and 40s with only a few, like in lower Washington County, seeing 50s. Along the Wasatch Front, we’ll see low- to mid-40s.

Skies will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy across the state, with most clouds being high cirrus clouds. Tonight will be quiet and cold, with lows that will resemble what we had last night.

Quiet conditions will hold tomorrow, but there will be some subtle changes. Temperatures will be a few degrees warmer than this afternoon as we see a few more clouds filter in. Those clouds will signal some changes coming our way for the second half of the workweek.

A system coming in from the west by Wednesday will bring an increasing chance of showers that will likely peak on Thursday and could linger into Friday morning.

At this point, showers will favor the northern half of the state with most of the wet weather likely to fall north of the I-70 corridor.

Temperatures will cool only slightly, which will mean most of what we see will be valley rain and mountain snow. It’s unclear just how much snow we could get, however, early returns suggest our northern mountains could see over half a foot in spots.

High pressure will briefly build back in by the second half of Friday into the beginning of the weekend.

Calm skies aren’t likely to stick around, though, as it’s becoming increasingly likely we enter a more active pattern across the state and the southwestern United States from late this weekend into early next week. Stay tuned!
