(Salt Lake City-AP) -- January is usually Utah's snowiest month. But on the final day of January, 2003, it sure doesn't look like it.

Salt Lake City's weather station has recorded just a trace of snow in January. Until now, 1961 had been the January with the least snow. About a tenth of an inch fell that year.

By tomorrow -- the first day of February -- things could change.

Weather forecasters see a storm moving in along with cooler weather. Chance of snow is 60 percent for Saturday night.
