First Published Jan 27 2012 07:28 am • Last Updated Feb 01 2012 07:08 pm

Enjoy those unseasonably warmer temperatures of the past couple days? Well, lock those memories away, at least for the weekend.

The National Weather Service predicts sunny skies but colder temperatures — with northern Utah highs in the upper-30s and overnight lows in the teens — for Saturday. In southern Utah, highs were expected to be in the 50s and overnight lows in the upper-20s under mostly clear skies.

Localized road flooding was reported in the central Cache County, but irrigation canals that had overflowed earlier this month did not appear in danger of failing Friday, Cache County emergency management officials said.

Though no new major storms were forecast going into the weekend, the state’s risks for potentially deadly backcountry snow slides remained serious. The Utah Avalanche Center rated the mountains near Salt Lake City and the western Uintas at "red," or high risk, while Logan, Ogden, Provo and Moab got "orange" or considerable risk grades for avalanches.
