Chilly nights are expected to continue across parts of Utah.

The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City said people living in the Salt Lake and Tooele valleys, along the Wasatch Front, the Western Uinta Basin, Castle Country, the San Rafael Swell, west central Utah, Sanpete and Sevier valleys and extreme southwest Wyoming can expect to see frost overnight.

The weather service recommends people in those areas cover or bring in cold-sensitive plants, provide shelter for pets or bring them inside, disconnect hoses from faucets and drain and winterize swamp coolers.

Lows were expected to reach 43 degrees Monday night and 48 degrees Tuesday night, with a Monday high of 71 degrees in Salt Lake City; Ogden looked for Monday and Tuesday lows of 39 and 41, respectively, with a Monday high of 68; Provo lows of 40 and 43, with a high of 73; Logan lows of 29 Monday and Tuesday nights with a high of 69; Wendover lows of 40 and 42 with a high of 67; Duchesne lows of 35 and 37 with a high of 66; Cedar City lows of 46 Monday and Tuesday nights with a high of 70; St. George lows of 58 and 53 with a high of 84; and Moab lows of 40 and 48 with a high of 76.

Temperatures are expected to warm slightly before Wednesday night and Thursday, when much of the state will face a chance of rain.
