So Herriman doesn't get the pollution/inversion of the Valley? Where else is it better? Cedar Valley? Toole?

I say this because SLC, Provo and Ogden are the top 3 in the nation. Makes me think all the air in Utah, SL, Davis and Weber counties are terrible.

Don't forget Cache County which is Logan proper. Also, don't forget the Uinta Basin in N.Eastern Utah, they've been socked in for weeks and it's below zero every single night.

Anything along the Wasatch Front is vulnerable to the gloom and doom of January. I hear the air is nice and so are the temps in St. George now, so no, it's not the whole state.

Right now, looks like the Northwestern part of the SL Valley are still in the muck. West of 15, the airport, the lower elevations, its high and sunny on the east in the U area.

Yes but Provo-SLC-Ogden is one big swath of humanity in one place. Cache Valley and Uinta Basin are pretty far, seperate areas.

What about West Utah County? or Tooele?

sp, haven't been, other than trips W. or E. on I80 I don't get out of SLC proper.

I see the muck has built back into the E Valley, latest is 73.4 g but it still hasn't warmed much. Looks like a wimpy storm system, bet the muck doesn't totally clear out until next week. Uggghhh, hope I'm wrong.

The ridiculous inversion we've had this season is all due to the lack of snow. I mean, come on. This January's gotten 10% of the snow we're supposed to get.

Oh we get it here in Herriman, but it hasn't been as bad as it was north, close to the great salt lake. We're quite a bit higher here, and the population density isn't nearly as bad, and there isn't a lot of traffic out here. That, and there has been a decent breeze from the south coming down off the hills, and I think that has been keeping the worst of it away. But make no mistake, with all that said, it's still really ugly.

Unfortuneately, it looks like 3 more days of elevated PM2.5, leading to a hazy sky weekend. Great that I have the weekend to spend in Vegas!

Hope it clears out by Monday.

January seems to be the worst month, but December and February can be bad, too. The air quality during the rest of the year is not all that bad.
