Below-freezing temperatures arrive with opening night film 'An Inconvenient Sequel' and could mar the planned Women's March on Main.

Park City is bracing for a slew of snow at Sundance Film Festival.

The festival locale sank to below-freezing temperatures ahead of Thursday's opening-night film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, Al Gore's climate-change follow-up to 2006's An Inconvenient Truth.

Sporadic snowfall is expected throughout the duration of the fest, while temperatures may dip as low as 11 degrees Fahrenheit during the Utah event's first few days, according to the National Weather Service.

The snow and cold weather is nothing new for the festival, and also shouldn't interfere with Sunday morning's Women's March on Main, a sister march to the rally taking place in Washington the day after Donald Trump is inaugurated. Numerous agents, publicists, managers and other organizers (all volunteers) spearheaded the march, which will be led by Chelsea Handler. Though there is a 50-percent chance of snow on Sunday, little to no snow accumulation is expected.
