...Low Temperature Reports...

...Widespread sub-zero temperatures were observed around the area this morning...

The combination of a cold airmass, a large snow field and clear skies allowed for
substantial radiational cooling around Eastern Utah and Western Colorado overnight.
This abundant radiational cooling allowed overnight low temperatures to fall well
below zero at many locations around the CWA. Here is a preliminary list of locations
that observed zero degree and below temperatures in our CWA.
