SALT LAKE CITY — That’s right, even though Tuesday’s temperatures didn’t feel like winter, it might have been one of the last days that we’ll be able to enjoy the warmth before the snow starts falling.

 

The National Weather Service has issued a hard freeze warning that goes into effect Wednesday night and will last through Friday for areas all along the Wasatch Front as a big cold front moves in.

This front also has some potential to drop valley snow in the yards of some across northern Utah.

 

KSL Meteorologist Grant Weyman says that Tuesday’s warm October temps won’t last long, and we’re in for quite the cooldown by this weekend.

Grant says that most of the state will be in the 20s come Friday morning. He adds, we could see snow showers between 10 am and 2 pm on Wednesday. Grant also says that there’s the possibility of two to four inches of lake effect snow that could start late Wednesday heading into Thursday for the Salt Lake and Tooele Valleys.

 

 

 

Along with the colder temperatures, the NWS has also said many areas in western Utah could also see wind gusts of up to 50 mph.
