KSL Meteorologist Grant Weyman says that we can expect highs in the 30s and 40s throughout the week, with the warmest day coming Sunday, where temperatures are expected to reach 55.
But cold isn’t the only thing in the forecast. Grant says that there’ll be plenty of snow in the forecast too. And that will be here in time to affect Tuesday’s morning commute.
“Beginning tonight, more snow is coming on the way. By tomorrow we’re talking about anywhere between 1 and 3 inches of snow, in the northern mountains 6-12 inches of snow that begins tonight and goes through tomorrow.”
