The Wasatch Front awoke Monday to icy roads, alabaster mountains and several inches of snow along the valley floors — along with a spate of stubborn, isolated power outages.

Tree limbs over-laden with ice and snow that cracked and took out power lines, and other weather-related equipment failures were blamed for the outages.

But Rocky Mountain Power crews had restored service to all weather-related outage areas by Monday afternoon.

The National Weather Service predicted that with overnight temperatures in the teens and daytime highs Tuesday forecast to be in the mid- to upper-30s, that blanket of white was expected to stay — and possibly be seasoned with an isolated snow flurry or two.

Meanwhile, southern Utahns looked for daytime highs in the mid- to upper-60s Tuesday, up about 10 degrees from Monday’s highs, but overnight lows were still expected to dip to near freezing.

The Utah Avalanche Center put its Ogden and Salt Lake mountain slopes in the "considerable" risk category for dangerous snow slides. The Logan, Provo and Skyline districts earned "moderate" avalanche risk grades.

The Utah Division of Air Quality raised its "Green," or healthy air quality banners into partly cloudy skies statewide.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature Tuesday was pegged at 42 degrees, up from Monday’s forecast for 37; Ogden looked for 41 and 38 degrees, respectively; Provo 44 and 40; Logan 42 and 36; Wendover 45 and 40; Duchesne 44 and 37; Cedar City 51 and 44; St. George 67 and 58; and Moab 48 and 42 degrees.
