Calm midweek before statewide storm Thursday

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Hey Utah, hopefully you are having a terrific Tuesday! Weather wise, we won’t see too many changes compared to what we had Monday.

Across the state we’ll see partly sunny to mostly cloudy skies with daytime highs that range in the 30s and 40s for most across the state. A few spots down south, like St. George, will reach the low 50s.

So far it has been somewhat of a soggy and snowy day in the southern half of the state, depending on where you are, but the chance of wet weather down south will gradually wind down as we move into Tuesday night. A slight chance for wet weather remains up north through the first half of Wednesday.

By Wednesday afternoon, we’ll be looking at a relatively cool and quiet day across the state with temperatures similar once again to what we find Tuesday.

Changes won’t be too far away though as by Thursday morning, our next storm will be moving in. While it’s not likely to be too strong of a storm, there will be a good chance of wet weather statewide.

For the most part, this looks like valley rain and mountain snow setup, but with cooler temperatures set to filter in. There is a chance we could see some snow down to around 4,500-5,000 feet in northern Utah, with a chance we get some snow down to around 6,000 feet in southern Utah.

The storm on Thursday will be far from the strongest of the season, but we could see some decent snow accumulations in the mountains of a few inches plus, with a chance some get closer to a foot. We’ll fine tune these totals as we get a little closer.

A few showers may linger into early on Friday across northern Utah, but by Friday afternoon into the weekend, high pressure will put its stamp on our weather.

That will lead to a stretch of quiet days across the state from the weekend into early next week with each day trending a little warmer than the last. We’ll go from temperatures near/slightly above seasonal norms this Friday to about 10-15 degrees above average by the middle of next.

There are hints that we could move back into more of a winter pattern as we begin February, however, that’s just something to keep an eye on for now.
