Much of Utah is experiencing above-normal temperatures for this time of year, which could bring the tennis players, the skateboarders and all sun lovers outdoors in northern Utah.
With the mercury climbing to 66 degrees, Zion National Park and St. George tied for the high in the state Monday, and temperatures could be about that warm again Wednesday, said Bill Cope of the Salt Lake office of the National Weather Service.And while the temperature reached a high of 43 degrees Monday and was expected to reach 46 Tuesday in the Salt Lake area, dense fog shrouded the Cache Valley Tuesday morning.
The normal high for Feb. 5 at the Salt Lake International Airport is 41 degrees. The normal low temperature is 22 for this day, but the thermometer dropped to only 25 degrees Tuesday morning at the airport.
Cope said the forecast calls for a 20 percent chance of showers late Tuesday afternoon and 40 percent Tuesday night in the Salt Lake, Ogden and Provo area.
"It should be short-sleeve shirt weather over much of the state through the week, except for higher elevations such as Randolph and Park City," Cope said.
