The fog may become locally dense at times late tonight. Strong and gusty northerly canyon winds will develop across Washington County overnight. These winds may impact travel along the I-15 corridor through that area. .DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday Inversion conditions will continue through at least Friday. Expect areas of fog to persist across many of the lower northern valleys through the end of the week. Urban haze and poor air quality will also continue through Friday due to the strong and persistent valley inversions across northern Utah. The next real chance to scour out the fog and haze will come Friday night through Saturday. A weather disturbance approaching from the northwest will likely bring enough wind and colder air aloft to significantly break down the inversions and push fog and haze out of the area. In addition, accumulating snow is expected across the mountains of northern Utah with this system, with perhaps an inch or two in the valleys as well. .SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT... Weather spotters are encouraged to report significant weather conditions according to standard operating procedures. $$ For more information from NOAA/s National Weather Service visit... http://weather.gov/saltlakecity For information on potential road travel impacts visit... http://www.udottraffic.utah.gov/roadweatherforecast.aspx
