Light snow fell in some areas along the Wasatch Front early Monday, but snow wasn't expected to accumulate much, if any, in the valleys during the day.

But 2 to 3 inches of snow was expected at the ski resorts. A little more of a threat of snow is forecast late Tuesday afternoon along the Wasatch Front and northern mountains, said William J. Alder, meteorologist in charge of the Salt Lake office of the National Weather Service.Sunday, a band of snow enhanced by the jet stream aloft affected an area stretching from Hill Air Force Base south, but missed the Brigham City and Cache Valley areas.

Patches of fog lingered in some areas. The temperature dropped to 4 degrees at 1:08 a.m. Monday at the Salt Lake International Airport, the coldest this winter and so far in 1990, said Alder.

The extended forecast for Wednesday through Friday calls for scattered snow showers at times, mainly in the north and mountains. Continued cold temperatures are expected.

Highs will be in the upper 20s to mid-40s. Lows will be in the teens to mid-20s with a few colder spots.
