First Published Apr 10 2012 06:37 am • Last Updated Apr 10 2012 10:13 am

Enjoy Tuesday’s exceptionally warm day because the unseasonable temperatures aren’t expected to stick around long.

The National Weather Service said many of Utah’s afternoon high temperatures were expected to be up to 20 degrees above normal and the state could potentially break temperature records. In Salt Lake City, residents could expect to see highs near 80.

But come Wednesday, those temperatures were expected to start cooling off. On Thursday, the high is only expected to reach a chilly 57 degrees. By Friday, northern Utahns could see some snow.

The Utah Avalanche Center said a "moderate" chance of slides remained for all of Utah’s mountains except the Moab and Manti Skyline mountains, which were not rated Thursday morning.

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

Salt Lake City looked for a high temperature of 79 on Tuesday and 75 on Wednesday; Ogden was expected to top out at 78 and 75, respectively; Provo, 80 and 74; Logan, 79 and 74; Wendover, 77 and 70; Duchesne, 76 and 75; Cedar City, 74 and 63; St. George, 87 and 74; and Moab, 84 and 81.
