Salt Lake from the Avenues Foothills yesterday @ 430 PM MST
At 2200 UTC (300 PM MST), it was a balmy 56ºF on the University of Utah campus and 58ºF just up the hill at the Utah Museum of Natural History. However, at the Salt Lake City International Airport, which is about 500 feet lower, it was only 50–52ºF.
The situation this morning is also fascinating. The morning sounding from the Salt Lake City airport shows that the inversion"\ is extremely shallow and actually consists of two distinct inversion layers, one that is based right at the surface (and is confined to the lowest part of the valley), and another that is just above it. You can just make out a break between these two layers at 850 mb.
