SALT LAKE CITY — Abnormally low temperatures, wind and, yes, possibly light snow are on the menu Thursday for the Wasatch Front.
According to the National Weather Service, another cold front will strike the Wasatch Front Wednesday night, dropping temperatures — and the snow level, which could fall to 4,300 feet after midnight.
However, the chance of precipitation is low, at just 20 percent.
"Mother Nature can't seem to make up her mind," said KSL meteorologist Grant Weyman."There may be a few valley snow showers early (Thursday) morning," he said.
Weyman expects a fair and warmer Mother's Day weekend but predicts it will be "stormy and cooler again next week."
Thursday morning's low is expected to dip to 35 degrees, feeling even colder as northwest winds could gust to 36 mph. Thursday's daytime high will only climb into the low 50s, some 15 degrees cooler than Wednesday.
Speaking of cold, two Utah cities set or matched low-temperature records Wednesday morning. The Bountiful Val Verda weather station logged 33 degrees, tying the all-time record set in 1999 for May 5. Randolph, in Rich County, sunk to 13 degrees to shatter the previous record of 17, set in 2001.
Salt Lake City was 34 degrees Wednesday morning.
Southern and central Utah were extra cold Tuesday morning, as Bullfrog and Price both set record lows and five other locations tied or set record-low maximum temperature records.
Salt Lake's temperatures in May have all been below normal, except for May 5, which was slightly above normal. Twenty of the 30 days in April boasted below-normal temperatures in Salt Lake City.
Look for a high of 63 degrees Friday and temperatures in the low 70s on both Saturday and Sunday. However, only Friday will be mostly sunny — the other days into next Tuesday will be mostly cloudy.
