Party cloudy horizons giving way to sunny skies and warmer temperatures were forecast for northern Utah this weekend and going into Monday.

The National Weather Service predicted high temperatures Sunday would hover around 50 degrees for the northern half of the state, up from Saturday’s forecast for highs in the mid-40s. Monday’s predicted highs were around 60 spring-like degrees.

If northern Utahns looked to pull out the light jackets or sweaters as they strolled outdoors, southern Utahns expected shirt-sleeve weather. Highs on Sunday were expected to flirt with 70 degrees after Saturday’s forecast highs of 60; the thermometer was to warm into the low 70s on Monday.

The warmer weather, coming in the wake of heavy snowfall in the mountains late last week, kept avalanche danger elevated. The Utah Avalanche Center rated Logan, Ogden and Provo area slopes at "red," or high risk for potentially deadly snow slides through the weekend, while Salt Lake City, the western Uintas and the Manti-Skyline areas were given "orange," or considerable avalanche risk rankings.

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

Salt Lake City looked for a high temperature Sunday of 51 degrees, up 7 degrees from Saturday’s forecast, and on Monday the high was to soar to 59; Ogden was forecast for readings of 47 Sunday following Saturday’s 41, with a predicted high of 55 on Monday; Provo expected 52, 42 an 57 degrees, respectively; Logan 45, 38 and 51; Wendover 53, 48 and 58; Duchesne 50, 43, 54; Cedar City 55, 46 and 60; St. George 69, 61, 72; and Moab 51 degrees Sunday after Saturday’s 45, and a 58-degree high for Monday.
