The weekend forecast for northern Utah calls for overcast skies, periodic valley rains and mountain snow showers.

High temperatures for the region will be around 50 degrees Saturday, with overnight lows this weekend in the low-30s.

The National Weather Service predicts increasing cloud cover and afternoon rain for southern Utah Saturday with highs in the 60s and lows in the upper-30s.

The Utah Avalanche Center graded mountain slopes near Ogden, Salt Lake City, the western Uintas, Provo and Moab at “orange,” or considerable risk for potentially dangerous snow slides, while the Logan area earned a “yellow,” or moderate avalanche risk ranking.

Air quality into the weekend was expected to fall within the “green,” or satisfactory rating.
