First Published Feb 26 2013 07:25 am • Last Updated Feb 26 2013 12:32 pm

Northern Utahns went to work Tuesday morning amid steady, but mostly light snowfall, but their drive home Tuesday evening was expected to be under sunny and clearing skies.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for a stretch of the Wasatch Front from Logan running south through Brigham City, Ogden, Salt Lake City, Park City, Provo and Nephi. The forecast called for 4-8 inches of new snow in the mountains, while the valleys expected 1-2 inches by mid-day with precipitation lessening and turning to rain later in the afternoon.

The advisory was to expire at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

High temperatures Wednesday for northern Utah were forecast to be in the mid-30s after overnight lows in the teens.

Southern Utahns looked for a mild Tuesday with highs in the mid-50s, the same temperatures predicted for Wednesday after overnight lows in the 30s. Partly cloudy to sunny skies and winds of 10-20 mph were also expected during the period.

As of Tuesday morning, the Utah Avalanche Center predicted the danger of backcountry snowslides to remain elevated. The Uintas and Moab mountains were at "considerable" risk while the rest of the state’s mountain slopes earned "moderate" risk ratings.

The Utah Division of Air Quality, meanwhile, was flying its "Green," or healthy air banners statewide into the mid-week.

Salt Lake City looked for highs of 34 degrees both Tuesday and Wednesday; Ogden 32s; Provo 37 and 38, respectively; Logan 29 and 25; Wendover 35 and 33; Duchesne 31 and 30; Cedar City 36 and 39; St. George 54 and 56; and Moab 42 degrees both days.
