Cars climb above the inversion as they head up the North Ogden Divide on Friday, Dec. 30, 2016.
SALT LAKE CITY — We have some unfortunate news, Northern Utah.
The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City is saying weather predictions over the next 10 days indicate conditions are just right for inversion to take hold of the area.
Christine Kruse, a meteorologist for the service, said there is a low chance the inversion will break up for several weeks. Because of this, Kruse said, the people of Northern Utah can expect deteriorating air quality as well.
As inversion conditions strengthen (and continue for the near future), there are a few things we can all do to help reduce the pollution. Partnered with @UtahDEQ & @UCAIR_UT here are some tips/ideas. #utwx #ActNow4CleanAir pic.twitter.com/NnPQb7bPh4— NWS Salt Lake City (@NWSSaltLakeCity) December 7, 2017
Kruse also said the weather service is not expecting snow in the area for at least the next 10 days. Anything beyond the 10 days is more difficult to predict and could potentially change in the coming days.
And it’s not just the Ogden area that is experiencing this snow drought. Much of the state will not see snowfall for some time, Kruse said.
A White Christmas isn't looking promising at the moment, though it's still too early to rule out at least one storm between December 15 and 25. Historically, Salt Lake City has had 1" or more of snow on the ground for 54% of Christmas Days. #utwx https://t.co/VlpMPysfSU— NWS Salt Lake City (@NWSSaltLakeCity) December 6, 2017
