First Published Feb 21 2012 06:57 am • Last Updated Feb 21 2012 09:14 am

Northern Utah looked for a dusting of new snow Wednesday morning, with warming temperatures expected to turn precipitation to rain in the valleys later in the day.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook for the entire state beginning Tuesday and extending into early Wednesday, but the storm system was forecast to be a relatively mild one.
