It might snow on Thanksgiving – but not much

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) It might snow in Salt Lake City on Thanksgiving, but the forecast calls for less accumulation than the city got on Nov. 12, seen in this photo.

It’s going to be chilly on Thanksgiving day in Utah, and it might snow. But probably not much.

If you’re driving on either Tuesday or Wednesday, the roads should be clear — there’s no precipitation in the forecast for the state, according to the National Weather Service. At least not until late Wednesday, when a cold storm system is expected to cross Utah.

The front will drop temperatures to the mid- to upper 20s overnight Wednesday. And it’s not going to warm up much on Thursday, with a high near 40.

There’s a 50% chance of snow on Wednesday night, with possible accumulation of less than half an inch. The chance of snow drops to 20% before 11 a.m. on Thanksgiving, but snow accumulations will be “limited, and confined to the higher terrain,” according to the National Weather Service. The forecast calls for mostly sunny for most of the day.

And the mostly clear, mostly sunny weather will continue through Monday, with lows in the 20s and highs in the 40s.

It’ll be cool in southern Utah — a high of 51 in St. George on Thanksgiving — but there’s no precipitation in the forecast through Monday. Sunny skies will prevail, with highs in the 50s through Friday and the low 60s on Sunday and Monday, and overnight lows at or near freezing.
