listed Logan as one of the top five cities with the worst air in the country at the time. Logan was moving lower on that list Tuesday afternoon and, with snowfall that started at about 12:30 p.m. and continued into the afternoon, Logan should move right off the top five list. According to the National Weather Service, snow is expected to continue in Logan and surrounding communities off and on through Wednesday night. Accumulations of one to two inches are expected Tuesday afternoon, with additional minor accumulations through the rest of the week. The snow is expected to wrap up by Thursday, however, leaving Christmas Eve and Christmas Day mostly clear and cold, with temperatures in the upper teens to low 20s.
