SALT LAKE CITY — Wednesday’s snow came and went fairly quickly, but that doesn’t mean the danger is over for both pedestrians and vehicles.

According to Fox 13’s chief meteorologist Kristen Van Dyke, Wednesday’s higher temperatures may have melted the snow — but freezing temperatures overnight could turn it the snow melt into ice.

Patchy fog is also possible Thursday morning. Valley haze will start to build again Thursday and Friday, but a weak storm brushing by Friday night is expected to improve air quality.

A stronger inversion will likely settle into place early next week.
