SALT LAKE CITY — The calendar might say it’s officially spring, but don’t hold your breath for spring-like temperatures.
Our snowpack continues to climb to record heights statewide. Additionally, more wet weather is expected to add snow to the mountains.
KSL Meteorologist Matt Johnson said it’s actually very normal for this time of year. The highs next week are expected to only reach the lower 50s.
However, cold temperatures are beneficial. Johnson said it’s important that we don’t warm up too fast because we don’t want the snowpack melting too quickly or too soon.
Johnson also said Utah saw similar patterns in 2011 with a high snowpack. The state got through that year without any major flooding.
“That water came down at a manageable pace. So, it’s doable,” said Johnson.
