Despite struggles on beam, Red Rocks roll to win Arizona State

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 Sports) — The top beam team in the nation didn’t look like it Friday night at the Huntsman Center.

But Utah’s gymnastics team is so deep and so talented that they had more than enough to pull off another win, posting season-high scores on bars and floor.

The No. 2-ranked Red Rocks easily beat No. 13 Arizona State at the Huntsman Center, 197,400 to 196,100.

Maile O’Keefe clocked 9.90 on beam and floor. Jillian Hoffman (floor) and Cristal Isa (beam) tied for the highest score in all events at 9.975.

“The ultimate conclusion tonight is that we have to run all four events,” said head coach Tom Farden. “Coming into the warm-ups I saw the vibe from the start and as coaches we need to help them prepare a bit more and be more intentional from the start. I know when they’re on and it’s was last weekend. I know when they have some quirks and it was this weekend.

Utah started the night with a solid vault production, led by Alexia Burch and Lucy Stanhope, who went on to claim a share of the event title. Utah combined for a 49.275 on vault to lead Arizona State, which posted a 49.225 on bars, in the first event.

The Utes appeared to have some momentum in the bar rotation after posting a season-high 49.425 as a team. Amelie Morgan set the tone early on posting a season high of 9.875. In her first barre routine of the season, Burch battled her way to a career-high 9.90 to keep the start going. Sage Thompson followed with a 9.85 before McCallum collected a season-high 9.925 that would earn him the first uneven bars title of his career.

Working with a slim 98.700-98.400 lead over the Sun Devils, Utah opened the beam with a 9.775 from Morgan but struggled to find any kind of consistency throughout the next three gymnasts. After a fall from Grace McCallum and a pair of scores in the 9.6 range, Isa had a huge rebound routine and got the crowd on their feet as she rolled in a career-high 9.975. The routine seemed like the momentum-changer the Red Rocks needed as O’Keefe stepped in next and worked his way to a 9.95 to wrap up an otherwise sub-par rotation for Utah .

Utah held a .250 lead going into the final rotation after 49.025 on beam. Continuing the momentum, Hoffman led the team on floor with a career-high 9.975 in his first-floor routine of the year. Hoffman’s routine, which became the first win of his career, sparked the rest of the roster as the Utes finished with four floor scores of 9.90 or better, combining for a 49.675.

Stanhope posted a 9.875 in second place, while Rucker hit a 9.925. With the game seemingly under control after Arizona State had their own problems on the beam, O’Keefe and Sydney Soloski closed the night in style with a pair of 9.95s.

Utah will be back in action next Saturday, Jan. 29, to host Stanford.

A storm is brewing. How much snow will Utah get?

Most of the snow will be in the mountains, but the storm should help clear the air.

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Poor air quality clouds the Salt Lake Valley on Tuesday, Jan. 18, 2022.

The big news of a storm that will continue through Friday morning in Utah is not what it will bring, but what it will take away.

According to the national weather service, the winter storm will drop maybe a few inches of snow – maybe more in some areas. But the great news is that it should stir up the air and eliminate the inversion and at least some of the smog plaguing the valleys of northern Utah.

A trace of 2 inches of snow is forecast for the northern Utah valleys and 3 to 7 inches in the mountain passes.

The storm is not expected to make the air crystal clear at lower elevations, but it is expected to improve air quality. According to the Utah Air Quality Division, Salt Lake, Cache, Davis, Tooele, Utah and Weber/Box Elder counties are expected to move to yellow/moderate air on Friday.

In Salt Lake City, the National Weather Service predicts a 70 percent chance of snow Friday, mostly before 8 a.m., with 1 to 3 inches of accumulation possible. Daytime temperatures will be in the low to mid 30s, with nighttime lows in the 20s.

Once the storm leaves Utah, there won’t be another in the forecast until the middle of next week. Expect mostly sunny skies, daytime highs in the low to mid 30s and overnight lows in the low 20s – and reversals should occur.

Southern Utah is in even more of a weather rut. The Thursday-Friday storm will not reach St. George, where the forecast is for sunny skies with highs in the mid-50s and overnight lows in the 30s through Wednesday.

‘The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City’ Season 2, Episode 17

What do you think of the teasers? Unless we’re talking about an order of curly fries for the table before the main course arrives, I’m the “nothing for me, thanks” team. At least when it comes to Bravo. I will read Reality Steve as interpreted by the Samaritans of Reddit until my brain falls out of my nostrils in vain hopes of distinguishing Single universe blond white ladies. But Andy Cohen being a silly, promising little goose”breathtaking bombsYou don’t need them! The bar is already set too high. What could be more mind-blowing than seeing someone get arrested for multiple federal crimes while someone else faces the possibility of leading a cult? And now I’m on red alert for this bombshell instead of just quietly watching my second favorite TV show, “girls might fight to the death”.

Speaking of which, we start right where we left off on the bus, with Lisa and Jen mutilating each other like two toddlers in a rusty McDonald’s PlayPlace fighting over the last lick of a dried container of sweet and sour sauce. Producer Shanae saves everyone’s eyeballs from being ripped out of their sockets, and Jen tries to swing her outburst into another stop on What-about-Omar’s-prom sympathy tour. That works. Jen and Lisa cry dry-eyed directly into each other in hopes of producing a single tear by force of will. Heather administers fuel for proper tear duct function (Smartfood White Cheddar Popcorn). They all agree that Jen should have the best room in the villa. Ramona Singer, watch your back!

Upon arriving at the villa, everyone completes their husbands’ FaceTiming “setup ritual” and speculates on how much the other girls must have had. Heather, in an Old Navy x Margaret Atwood look, obviously skips the hubby piece and tells Whitney she thinks Jen is drunk and hurt. Shit, well done. It better be some sort of red herring because I don’t know if I’ll survive a payback redemption story from season three. I’m already a Luann apologist. I’m pretty sure my soul will burn if I have to cheer on Jennifer Shah as she becomes this bitch who doesn’t really do her stage work, who you can’t help but love because she always brings Spindrift and the ‘fresh spensif -cookies from the bakery every Encounter.

Luckily, it looks like that’s not happening anytime soon. At the pool, Jen rips off her extension and throws it at Lisa, who enlightened us with two new bits of information. These may be Andy’s “Breathtaking Bombs”. (1) She was working at Hooters (right after Mary M. Cosby, that would have been my last guess as to who has that specific service industry experience on the old resume), and (2) She decided to “start being much meaner because being nice doesn’t work”, implying that she thinks she’s nice to begin with. What a gas!

Knock, knock, knock, and it’s a few shoulder pads well on their way to sentience as they slowly gnaw at Mary and Meredith’s bodily forms. They better hurry, though, because sunlight is limited and white purity garments are imperative for Whitney’s Mormon sacrament meeting—I mean, “Red Earth Ceremony.” Spiritual healer Betina isn’t expecting anyone, so Meredith is forced onto the bus in her flared denim tuxedo. Mary stays behind as she still needs time to adjust the Thom Browne baseball cap which may or may not be stuck to her head, Matilda style.

At the maze, the ladies clutch their bundles of gratitude and proclaim what they’re about to give up – a task no one understands because everyone’s response is a different flavor of mental gymnastics landing on “I’m practically perfect, and the others are the problem.” Thirty-four minutes later, with everyone struggling to figure out the number of syllables in “Meredith”, Mary appears. She doesn’t want to be there. She hasn’t wanted to be there for a moment this season. She stands 20 feet from the drum circle, occasionally looking up to listen with her eyes like this one time in New Orleans when I was the only other person in a restaurant besides Benjamin Linus of Lost and the red-haired lady true blood, and I tried/failed to play cool and keep my eyes on my breakfast sandwich. Mary then goes on to mock Whitney’s spiritual rituals as if her own spiritual rituals don’t “maybe inflict harm as a way to buy the ugliest shit Gucci has ever produced”. Alas, Heather is lucid and ready to bond.

And the link actually they do! Er, at least if we follow the textbook’s definition, which is “to establish a relationship with someone based on shared feelings, interests, or experiences.” Hint: Shared interest may or may not keep the Bravo paychecks coming. Jen transforms into something more snake-y tittylicious, and Meredith puts on a kaftan, and everything that follows is auditory hell. I still don’t know if they lost the plot or if my easily overstimulated brain did. In an attempt to make sense of this, here’s a play-by-play:

• Meredith didn’t come on the bus because she had to drive Sethie to a doctor’s appointment, which he could have gone himself if it was another day.
• Mary didn’t come on the bus because — she refuses to give a reason. She also refuses to apologize for this or anything else.
• Lisa suggests that Meredith didn’t come on the bus because of Jen. (No shit, Sherlock.)
• Meredith deflects and tells Jen that Jennie called her a criminal. (A true deviant-protruding “pot meets kettle” situation!)
• Jen screams a lot then leaves. Meredith is disgusted.
• Everyone else bickers about Lisa and Jen’s friendship, Lisa and Meredith’s friendship, Meredith and Mary’s friendship, and Whitney and Mary’s friendship.
• Marie powders her nose at the table. That’s not an understatement.
• The girls argue over who’s the baddest of them all while Jen is still in the kitchen putting her mitts in a tub of what I can only guess is chicken salad.
• Jennie calls Meredith for responding “¯_(ツ)_/¯” to Mary’s racist bullshit. Meredith apologizes because she “isn’t in a mental state for this level of dissension.”
• Meredith completely loses any shred of divinity she had left from those bathtub antics on the day of the arrest.
• Heather gives Mary a steak in exchange for bringing Meredith back to the table.
• Jen returns with what appears to be a Spacemaker pencil box and a hot pretzel.
• Mary spends 92 minutes explaining to Whitney that she doesn’t have the mental capacity to say “we’re friends” to her, which surely takes more mental capacity than just saying “we’re friends”.
• The private investigator shit pops up and Jen redirects her anger at Jennie because Meredith says the investigator was investigating everyone, not just Jen.
• Meredith is still traumatized…oh no…anything but that…please…I’m begging…
• MY PRAYERS WERE TOO LATE; THIS IS ANOTHER MEAL OF VAGINAGATE.
• Meredith screams! Jen screams! They grind their saliva directly into each other’s gaping mouths!
• Jen tells Meredith that she leads a fraudulent life. Meredith continues to try “baby” and “honey” as condescending clapbacks to limited success. Jen says Meredith has “ten other fucking boyfriends.”

I mean, if Seth was my husband, I too would have ten fucking boyfriends, and probably eight fucking girlfriends too. So help me, God, if Andy’s jaw-dropping bombshell is that Meredith and Seth are two consenting adults in an open relationship.

Either way, see you next week for a brisk hike and Heather eating Sugar Babies in bed. In the meantime, please guess on the Breathtaking Bomb – wrong answers only. I, for one, have my fingers crossed for a big reveal that Teddy was stolen from Vanderpump Dogs and planted in Utah by Randall Emmett in a long, failed con for Lala to graduate. Housewives status and sound movies best reviewed at Sundance (still working out the details, but sounds like Occam’s razor, right?).

Mountaineer turned conservationist Rick Reese leaves a monumental outdoor legacy

Pioneering educator-activist and Salt Lake City native dies at 79 after a life of saving lives and landscapes.

(Todd Wilkinson | Mountain Journal) Rick Reese, pictured on the Bonneville Shoreline Trail above Salt Lake City, was a pioneering environmental activist, outdoor educator and mountaineer. The Utah native, who helped found the Greater Yellowstone Coalition and the Utah nonprofit that established the famous trail along the shore of ancient Lake Bonneville, died on 9 January 2022 at age 79.

Editor’s note • This story is only available to Salt Lake Tribune subscribers. Please support local journalism.

Rick Reese, who influenced a generation or two of environmental activists, outdoor educators and mountaineers in his native Utah and beyond, died Jan. 9 at his home in Montana. During his 79 years, he built a conservation legacy that celebrated a broader view of what environmental protection means and led to the creation of Utah’s beloved Bonneville Coastal Trail.

While Reese was best known for his activism in Montana, as co-founder of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, he was one of the native sons of Salt Lake City who pushed the boundaries of Wasatch climbing when the sport was in its infancy, according to longtime friend and climbing partner Ted Wilson.

Wilson remembers first meeting young Reese when Reese was still a student at East High School and had just returned from climbing Mount Rainier in Washington. That was in 1959 and they have remained close friends ever since, sharing many adventures and occasional disagreements.

Over the years of setting up routes in the Wasatch, Wilson observed how Reese combined courage and physical strength with caution.

“He could do both at the same time. He approached life that way,” said Wilson, who became mayor of Salt Lake City. “He was strong, but he understood that there were forces bigger than himself, in life and in climbing, that he had to honor. He did it with pure principles.

Reese was born in Salt Lake City in 1942. Fresh out of high school, he joined the National Guard and was deployed to Germany during the Berlin Airlift, according to Reese’s obituary. He returned home to study political science at the University of Utah, where he met his wife Mary Lee, and later graduate school at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies at the University of Denver. .

Reece would later serve in the United States as Director of Community Relations. While pursuing his undergraduate studies, he worked summers as a climbing ranger at Grand Teton National Park and later pioneered routes in the Wasatch that remain unmatched to this day.

“The thinnest line of the Wasatch for traditional climbers and the most natural line is Triple overhangs which he created in the 1960s in the Lone Peak Circus” with Fred Beckey and Bob Irvine, said Peter Metcalf, co-founder of Black Diamond Equipment. “But when it comes to conservation, his legacy is incredible. He was one of Utah’s greatest conservationists, if not the greatest in Utah history, not to mention a pioneer mountaineer.

As park rangers in the 1960s, Reese and his colleagues invented the techniques, virtually on the fly, to rescue people in vertical terrain. Along with Wilson, Pete Sinclair and four other rangers, he pulled off what is considered “the most advanced, technical, daring and courageous rescue” on the Grand Teton North Face in 1967, according to Metcalf. This feat was commemorated in a 2013 film, The great rescue, by Wilson’s daughter Jenny Wilson and Meredith Lavitt.

“Reese was known as the best climber on the team,” said Reece’s biography for the film. “It was not just his ability to move quickly over mountainous terrain that set him apart, but also his calmness when things got serious.”

The Rees then moved to Helena, Montana in 1970 with their children Paige and Seth while Reece taught at Carroll College. In Montana, the couple were recruited to lead the Yellowstone Institute by Yellowstone Park Superintendent John Townsley.

It was this experience that helped Reese refine his famous idea of ​​a “Greater Yellowstone”.

“When we were Jenny Lake rangers, he was like, ‘Yellowstone and Teton [national parks] are great places, but they need to be bigger. These animals do not stop at the border; they graze, the grizzly is threatened. We have to protect their food sources,” Wilson said. “And he went on and on about it, and he just kept talking to people. He met with the Park Service folks and expanded the idea.

This led to the creation of the Greater Yellowstone Coalition in 1983, promoting the concept that protecting Yellowstone also means protecting the ecosystem surrounding the two national parks.

“He made it a strength for a new wilderness,” Wilson said. “There’s a lot of new wilderness up there because of Rick.”

It was this kind of thinking that inspired the designation of vast Western national monuments—Missouri River Breaks, Basin and Range, Grand Staircase-Escalante, and Bears Ears—that sought to protect entire landscapes.

Reese confused later mountain diary with journalist Todd Wilkinson, who continues to report on the relationship between the people and the land of the Greater Yellowstone region.

Reese also served as a mentor and advisor for Save Our Canyons, according to executive director Carl Fisher, who relied on Reese’s advice to push back development in the Wasatch Central Range.

“His love of Western landscapes is rooted in the Wasatch,” Fisher said. “He went on to accomplish great things.”

Among these was the creation of the Bonneville Shoreline Trail Committee in the 1990s with Jim Byrne to develop the now famous path following the contours of the former Bonneville lake. Today, the trail is used daily by thousands of Wasatch Front residents seeking respite from nature on the edge of Utah’s bustling cityscape.

Celebrations of Reese’s life will be held this spring in Bozeman, Montana, and Salt Lake City.

2 children killed, 1 injured in West Valley City high school shooting, police say

The shooting follows a scuffle between two groups of students, police said.

When approached by a Salt Lake Tribune reporter, a woman said she did not know any students at Hunter High. “We’re just here to support,” she said.

A man and a woman in separate groups both said they were there because their nephew was involved in the shooting. On the sidewalk, another woman cried as someone hugged her tightly, her moans filling the cold air.

The shooting took place along a main thoroughfare, bordered on either side by patches of weed-covered land. Two smaller crime scenes in nearby neighborhoods were also under investigation, Vainuku said.

“The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City” Season Two Episode 16

I returned. At first I thought the disruption situation two weeks ago was a gift from Joseph Smith himself to give me some breathing space as I planned a move across the country, but it turned out. Turned out it was actually just vacation or whatever, given the show came back in my midst while driving from Chicago to LA (PS thank you again, Louis!). Turns out I’m not at the center of the Bravo cinematic universe, something Mary M. Cosby apparently still grapples with.

I’ll go ahead and assume you’ve all seen it the news that Mary played hooky on the day of the reunion taping because she didn’t want to conform to the Big Bird-at-the-job-fair dress code that Meredith had planned. Or, more likely, she just didn’t want to face a moderate (ish) conversation about any of her, uh, stocks. Mary also confirmed her absence with a IG post, which features quotes from a psychiatrist named Marcia Sirota on how “bad reality TV rots our brains and makes us rude”, among other things.

As much as I want to skip Seth’s birthday party and do a close read of Mary’s art direction and hashtag choices, I’ll stick to three stray observations. 1.) This same psychiatrist starting on the evils of reality TV also writes a Blog on The single person which reads like those Insider plays where a New Yorker goes to the Midwest and says, “There was time and a grocery store, and I couldn’t believe people there were wearing shoes.” I was also surprised to find traffic lights. 2.) I chose to read the line “bad reality TV rots our brains…” with an emphasis on wrong, so this whole situation becomes a cultural criticism. 3.) Fascinating for Mary to decide on two seasons and some paycheck shit as she suddenly has an ethical problem at the precise moment she can no longer control the narrative. Correlation doesn’t necessarily imply causation, but just ‘food for thought’, you know?

Back in Utah, John, Justin, Duy and Seth are golfing. Why do we see this extended bro-down ho-down with talking hubby heads? If I wanted to watch dudes ironically demanding ‘cleavage and courage’ themed birthday deals, I would head to HBO Max and get attached to the Entourage derivative feature film. Alas, the boys are thrilled for Seth’s Day and are planning a Mother’s Day excursion to Zion for their wives.

Heather also sets up a spa day for Jen to show she cares about her criminal charges or whatever. They have a “conversation” (using “conversation” very loosely here because the edit looks like what would happen if you asked Sonja Morgan to do a TikTok) about Meredith’s loyalty to Mary, which I understand. agree, is bizarre bordering on infamous. The two girls assume that Mary and Meredith MUST be behind the Feds who stormed the bus because “how did they know we were at the Beauty Lab?” Umm, maybe because you’re filming a TV show that runs between about 3.2 locations ?! Like, I’m pretty sure I could switch to SLC at this very moment and get into Beauty Lab or one of the “Osteria” and meet at least two of the 46 Angies in your orbit! Jen isn’t invited to Seth’s birthday party, which doesn’t surprise anyone.

It’s not like she missed much, though. Aside from Meredith and Seth’s Party City x Westworld Host look being 7% scarier than normal (the bar is high), the footage was mostly Teddy the dog growling around a hot tub. Plus, Meredith sits down with Mary so she can tell her that the racist comments were basically fine and a completely understandable incident. Absolutely not. Mary’s comments (which I won’t repeat) were not a misreading of Mariame Kaba or a difficulty in grasping a specific nuance of Ocean Vuong. Like, I’m pretty sure most kids learn this specific anti-racism lesson from Elmo. Meredith and Mary then discuss Lisa’s jealousy, and that’s why she “lashes out” on Mary by telling Jennie that the shoes have been cropped. Of course, okay.

After everyone has engaged in a long discussion about Whitney’s bazoombas, Heather asks Meredith if she has considered inviting Jen, and of course she hasn’t! Meredith immediately returns to her “terrorized and traumatized my family for two years” mode, and ultimately, someone asks if there’s more to the story because Ms Marks has been treating the teat of a few likes on Twitter for 14 solid episodes now and those poor udders are raw and shriveled. She says ‘of course there are’ but gives no details, an interesting choice for someone who insisted on more details when she already had a first-hand account of someone’s religious trauma. , with corroborating bank statements!

End on an episode derived from House hunters: downsizing of the accused, the Shahs do their couples therapy painting homework while discussing the closet size of the two beds and two bathrooms that Jen checked out earlier in the week. Jen says her love is strong and everlasting and blessed. Coach says [dog that looks like both a worm and a turtle at the same time] and that Jen is, in fact, a guest on the Zion Girls’ Trip.

The distance from Salt Lake City to Zion is four hours and 20 minutes (sick, bruh). I’m telling you this so as not to pontificate on how many McDonald’s Lisa has brought or how many breaks Kevin the driver has been commissioned to but in the hope of making sense of the craziness unfolding. I’ve watched it a few times, and I still don’t understand how they went from being absent from Mary and Meredith to an intense brawl with Jen and Lisa. At this point, my guess is that Jen got on that bus with the intention of fighting Lisa – whether it’s her own or the production plan is unknown. Otherwise, I don’t understand! Like, girl, you were invited! You have an open federal criminal case! All you had to do was chat a bit and mind your own business (real and / or fraudulent)!

Part of me wants to sympathize with someone who just spent 32 hours in a car with a cat who refused to take his sedatives and therefore spent the entire time moaning throatily trying to make his way out of the cage transport: travel by car is difficult! There was absolutely a time when I, too, was like, “I SHUT UP THE FUCK NOW, GET OUT OF MY FUCKING FACE.” I’M DONE. ”But then I remembered how lucky I was to be alive and well and moving to a place that sells Home Run Inn frozen pizza in select grocery stores without also having one hell of an annual polar vortex. I guess perspective, gratitude, and self-awareness don’t exactly make reality TV compelling, though. So if I ever find myself in this situation with a camera present, I don’t. sure to tell my cat YOU’RE NOT TAKING RESPONSIBILITY GO, COME ME, BRO and see if I can tempt him into a physical altercation.

Anyway, see you next week for “TO CONTINUE! In the meantime, a guess: would you rather have Seth Marks as a husband or as a dad?

SLC International’s New USO Airport Center Provides Comfort for On-the-Go Military

Travel-weary military service men and women and their families will have some respite from the chaos and hustle and bustle of air travel with the new USO Airport Center at Salt Lake International Airport.

The new airport hub will provide support to military personnel and families serving, training and traveling in Utah.

The United Service Organizations, or USO, smoothly opened the new facility in December last year and are planning a grand opening of the airport hub on February 4, according to a press release on Friday.

The 933-square-foot facility will include comfortable furniture for resting, computers and Wi-Fi, free snacks and drinks, luggage storage, and a lounge area with TV entertainment, movies and games. family.

“The larger airport has allowed us to provide an exceptional location and space for our military men and women,” said Bill Wyatt, executive director of the Salt Lake City Airports Department. “We hope that military personnel who connect through SLC will find rest and relaxation here and that it will make their travels more enjoyable.

The military are no strangers to long travel days with several stopovers. When an enlisted member receives travel or relocation orders, they often ship them ahead of other family members, leaving spouses and children through the hardships of travel without the assistance of their partners.

The new airport center hopes to alleviate some of the stress of travel.

In addition to downtown airport amenities, USO Utah will provide support operations and program delivery to the state’s five military bases. Support operations include USO bridging programs, emotional wellness programs, children’s camps and family days, officials said.

“I am excited to share a little bit of Utah with every visitor to the new USO Center,” said new USO Utah Operations and Programs Director Nate Vandenberg.

USO Utah is seeking volunteers to join the team of more than 30,000 USO volunteers who support local military service members and their families. Those interested in donating or volunteering should visit utah.uso.org.

Snow and rain linger before temperatures start to heat up

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Good Thursday, folks!

It’s another volatile day in northern Utah, with calm conditions and a warming trend towards the south. We still have a winter storm warning in effect for the mountains of northern Utah and southwestern Wyoming until 5 p.m. Thursday.

In this warning, we expect heavy snowfall, especially for the mountains (18-36 inches), and strong winds are also likely. This will result in periods of blowing snow. Be extremely careful if you are traveling on mountain roads. Southwestern Wyoming is expected to pick up 4 to 8 inches of snow along the length of the warning. Areas prone to blowing snow or blowing snow, including Interstate 80 NE, Sardine Summit, and Logan Canyon, could experience particularly difficult travel conditions.

In valleys and mountain valleys, some persistent showers are possible. Rain would be the type of precipitation, as a warming trend brings these daytime highs into the low to the mid-1940s along the Wasatch Front. These temperatures are slightly above average for Salt Lake this time of year, with a seasonal normal around 38 degrees.

We will see warmer temperatures persist until the end of our first work week of the year. In southern Utah, you’ll feel like you’re just a few states away. We will see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies across most of southern Utah as temperatures continue to rise. We will see over 40 with Moab returning to the low 40 as St. George enters the 50 today. Similar weather will continue through Friday, with each day being a few degrees warmer than the last. That means St. George could approach 60 by Friday. The nights will always be cool, with most falling to at least the mid-1930s.

At the end of the line ? We have an unstable Thursday for the north as this storm system dissipates, and dry and calm conditions in the south.

Stay ahead of changing weather conditions with Utah’s most accurate forecasts, both live and online! We are There4You!
