Even though the spring was officially supposed to begin Tuesday, Mother Nature decided one more day of chilly temperatures was in store for Utah.

Those cold temperatures were expected to remain across the state Tuesday as this weekend’s wintry weather took its final bow. But come Wednesday, spring was expected to finally be the victor, bringing warm temperatures and sunny skies.
