SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Freezing temperatures normally seen only during the heart of winter are sweeping across Utah as long-standing records fall in several spots across the state.
National Weather Service meteorologist Monica Traphagen said Tuesday that more records are expected to be broken overnight as temperatures dip even lower before warming up slightly for Halloween.
She says it was 13 degrees Tuesday morning at Pine View Dam northeast of Ogden, breaking the record set in 1970. Records were tied or broken at three national parks in southern Utah’s red rock country: Canyonlands, Capitol Reef and Zion.
Heavy snow fell at ski resorts east of Salt Lake City in a boost to their efforts to open early while many parts of the Salt Lake City metro area received light snow.
Temperatures in Salt Lake City were below freezing.
