Frigid temperatures and chances for frozen precipitation
(KSLA) - Temperatures are very likely cooling down to the coldest we have seen so far this winter season. High temperatures could be in the 30s for a few days and there’s a chance for some wintry precipitation too!
Tonight will be cloudy with fog and mist in some areas. Not everyone will see rain. Lows tonight will be cold around the I-30 corridor. They will be around the upper 30s. Along and south of the I-20 corridor will be in the upper 40s to the mid 50s.
Wednesday will be a little damp with scattered showers around. A thunderstorm or two will be possible. By the late afternoon is when the rain will pick up more. So by the evening and overnight hours, there will be some heavy downpours in a couple spots. Rain chances for the day are up to 50%. Temperatures will range from the upper 30s to low 40s in the far north to the mid 60s in the far south.
Thursday will be wet at times. Scattered rain and a few storms will be possible. Locally heavy downpours are possible in spots. Temperatures will continue their downward trend with highs only in the 30s and 40s.
Friday also looks to be very cold with temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s. There could be a little rain, mainly in the morning. Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy with limited sunshine. Overnight, temperatures will be falling to the 20s! Make sure to bundle up!
By this weekend, we are looking to have the coldest temperatures of the winter season! Assuming this Arctic blast from Canada makes its way down like we expect, we will have high temperatures in the mid to upper 30s, and overnight low temperatures in the 20s and possibly the teens! Overall, it will be cloudy, but some sunshine may be possible at times. It will certainly be a cold weekend, but perfect for staying indoors! A little moisture may move through on Saturday which could produce a light wintry mix in some areas. Right now the chances look low and impacts would be minimal, but we’ll keep you First Alert if things change!
Monday will potentially bring out best chance of seeing some frozen precipitation during this cold snap. Snow is looking more and more likely with accumulations possible. I have raised the chance of snow up to 40% as it is trending in the that direction. Temperatures will certainly be cold enough, as it will only heat up to the lower 30s!
Have a great week and get ready for a cold blast!
