With an inversion firmly in place, we're still socked in with valley haze. Dense fog will also limit visibility in the morning, especially across NW Utah and near the Idaho border.

A weak weather system will brush by Southern Utah today, mainly bringing some clouds. A few light valley rain and mountain snow showers are possible in the far south.

A stronger storm will finally move in on Friday. It might not bring much snow, but will likely be enough to break up the inversions and improve air quality.
