SALT LAKE CITY — For many, the weather in the month of November has been enjoyable. However, a cooldown in the weather is coming this week. And freezing temperatures along the Wasatch Front could be felt as early as Wednesday.

According to the National Weather Service out of Salt Lake City (NWS) the warm weather will carry over into Monday. The NWS says the high in Salt Lake City on Monday will be 68.

Cooldown in the weather could come Wednesday

By Wednesday, however, the high in Salt Lake City will be 43. The NWS says Salt Lake City is currently experiencing temperatures that are 10 to 15 degrees warmer than usual.

The drop in temperature won’t be felt too much by those in St. George. Monday’s high in St. George is expected to be 76. And by Wednesday, the high temperature will be 65.

While there is a slight chance of rain on Tuesday along the Wasatch Front, the main issue this week will be the temperature drop.

According to the NWS, Salt Lake City has a 45% chance of having a below freezing morning on Wednesday.

However, Salt Lake City isn’t the only one facing the cold this week.

The NWS also reports that Heber (89%), Tooele (51%) and Ogden (60%) also have a great chance to wake up to a cold morning Wednesday.


The NWS also reports that Salt Lake City International Airport has not seen a temperature below 32 degrees since April 12. NWS is forecasting Salt Lake City’s first freeze will be on the morning of Nov. 17. According to NWS, that would tie the record (Nov. 17, 2016) for the latest first freeze in Salt Lake City.
