Sunday is going to be wet, with valley rain and mountain snows expected in northern Utah — and a winter weather advisory in place through Sunday night for mountain ranges throughout the state.

The National Weather Service predicted a good chance of seeing some rain or snowfall Sunday in both northern and southern Utah.

Up to 10 inches of snow was expected to accumulate in all parts of Utah located above 7,000 feet in elevation, and from 1 to 3 inches in the Bear River Valley, the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City predicted.

The snowfall was expected to taper off into showers Sunday night. Drivers are warned to watch out for snow-covered roadways in Utah’s higher elevations.

The Utah Avalanche Center issued "orange," or considerable risk ratings for the mountains of Salt Lake City, Ogden, Provo, the western Uintas and Moab, while Logan earned a "yellow," or moderate risk grade for potentially deadly snow slides.

Come Monday, the chance for rainy or snowy precipitation was expected to linger in parts of northern Utah, but the weather service pegged the chance of seeing any during the daytime hours at about 20 percent. However, some southern Utahns — particularly those in the Cedar City area — have a much higher percent chance of seeing some sort of snowfall Monday and into Tuesday, or rainfall in the St. George area.

Salt Lake City is forecast to hit a high temperature for Sunday and Monday of 45 and 46 degrees, respectively; Ogden was pegged at 44 and 43; Provo 46 both days; Logan 42 both days; Wendover 42 and 41; Duchesne 41 and 38; Cedar City 41 and 42; St. George 58 and 54; and Moab 48 and 49 degrees.
