Utahns break out those heavier coats and jackets and prepare to bundle up.
A cold air mass has settled into the Intermountain West and over the state after Monday’s weak storm. Though clouds lingered throughout the day, skies are clearing leading temperatures to drop to their lowest so far this fall season for most.
Some of the coldest valleys could see temperatures fall into the single digits and teens Tuesday night.
To prepare for the cold, now is the time to turn off your sprinklers as pipes could freeze, keep your pets indoors, check on the elderly and think about replacing that furnace filter.
Changing the furnace filter will keep your furnace lasting longer, allows you to breathe easier and keeps the electric bill lower.
Temperatures will rebound to above normal levels by Thursday, but a weak storm in the forecast that may bring another round of showers by Friday and slightly cooler temperatures. Overall, temperatures will stay mainly above average with a couple of storms grazing northern Utah with a mixture of clouds and sunshine.
