Even though the spring was officially supposed to begin Tuesday, Mother Nature decided one more day of chilly temperatures was in store for Utah.

Those cold temperatures were expected to remain across the state Tuesday as this weekend's wintry weather took its final bow. But come Wednesday, spring was expected to finally be the victor, bringing warm temperatures and sunny skies.

The Utah Avalanche Center said a "moderate" chance of slides remained for all of Utah's mountains except for the Manti Skyline. The Manti mountains were not rated Tuesday morning.

The air quality statewide was "green," or good, according to the Utah Division of Environmental Quality.

Salt Lake City looked for a high temperature of 38 on Tuesday and 48 on Wednesday; Ogden was expected to top out 45 and 58, respectively; Provo, 45 and 57; Logan, 43 and 55; Wendover, 47 and 56; Duchesne, 44 and 56; Cedar City, 43 and 56; St. George, 56 and 67; and Moab, 56 and 61.
