Then, there's the matter of air quality: It's getting worse.
The Utah Division of Air Quality rated Salt Lake, Davis, Utah, Weber, Box Elder, Cache and Tooele counties in the "yellow," or moderate range, for breathability on Thanksgiving. So, it's probably better to stay indoors and inhale the aroma of those holiday turkey legs and hams than venture out into the muck.
However, the air typically is cleaner in the mountains, and that's where a lot of Utahns, and ski tourists from out of state, will make Thanksgiving excursions. Backcountry skiers should take note, though: The Utah Avalanche Center issued "moderate" risk ratings for potentially dangerous snow slides.
Under partly cloudy skies, the Wasatch Front looked for a holiday temperature range from the low-30s overnight to upper-40s for daytime times.
Southern Utahns also expected partly cloudy skies to usher in daytime highs in the upper-50s after overnight lows in the low-30s.
