SALT LAKE CITY — You're going to get plenty of wear out of your winter coat the next few days!

Morning temperatures will continue to drop below average and as inversions strengthen this weekend, pollution will get trapped in the valleys.

A weak storm will move in early next week, weakening the inversions and bringing some improvement in air quality. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like we'll get much snow. There might be a couple inches in the mountains, but it doesn't look like anything in the valleys. It'll likely stay dry through next week.
