No snow but good air for 2018 debut

A goose tries to land on the ice covered Sugarhouse Park lake in Salt Lake City on Sunday. Daily high temperatures on the Wasatch Front are anticipated to range from the high 30s to low 40s over the first five days of 2018, said KSL meteorologist Dan Guthrie, hovering just above the early January average high of 37 degrees. No precipitation is expected through Friday, Guthrie added, and "air quality is good everywhere" along the Wasatch Front. He said the good air quality is fortunate for those looking to celebrate the new year with fireworks. "In past years, they haven't been able to do fireworks shows," Guthrie said of Salt Lake City's annual New Year's Eve celebrations. But this year's conditions haven't presented any problems.
