Photos: Rainstorm helps wash away cruddy air

People walk through the rain in downtown Salt Lake City on Wednesday after a cold front moved into the area overnight. While it rained in the valley, snow fell in the upper elevations. As of Wednesday afternoon, snow totals at Utah ski resorts over the past 24 hours ranged from 3 inches at Alta to 9 inches at Deer Valley to 10 inches at Brighton. In addition to bringing snow to the ski resorts, the storm cleared the air along the Wasatch Front, with the Utah Division of Air Quality calling for green — or good conditions — over the next several days. KSL meteorologist Grant Weyman said a smaller storm is expected to bring a few showers Friday.
