Much of Utah started Tuesday under a winter weather advisory, expecting bench and mountain snowfall ranging from a couple inches to more than a foot along slippery high-elevation travel conditions.

From near Provo running southeast to Green River, south through Price, Escalante, Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park and southwest into the Cedar City and St. George areas, wintry weather was expected to be the rule until late Tuesday afternoon. Portions of Interstate 70 and Highways 6, 191 and 12 were expected to be especially hit hard.

Meanwhile, forecasters issued a winter storm warning for the southeastern Utah area of Monticello. Snowfall of up to 5 inches during the day Tuesday and another 4 inches Tuesday night was expected. The warning extended into mid-day Wednesday.

Salt Lake City, where light snow was falling as dawn approached Tuesday, looked for highs of 39 and 38 Tuesday and Wednesday, sandwiching an overnight low of 23 degrees; Ogden was pegged at 37, 36 and 23; Provo 41, 41 and 24; Logan 32, 32 and 16; Wendover 34, 36 and 20; Duchesne 32, 30 and 12; Cedar City 33, 33 and 13; St. George 50, 50 and 31; and Moab 45, 42 and 28 degrees.

The Utah Avalanche Center kept its risk rating for dangerous snow slides at "green," or low for all sectors of the state.

The Department of Environmental Quality gave "green" air quality rankings, from good to moderate, for all monitoring districts Tuesday and Wednesday.
