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. 

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. 

The Utah Department of Environmental Quality listed air quality in Northern Utah counties as “moderate” for Thursday through Saturday.
