Temperatures in Utah County were projected to be similar, though in Davis County high temperatures Monday will likely only reach the mid 40s, with lows in the mid 30s.

In southern Utah, spring has already apparently arrived, with sunny skies and highs Monday reaching the mid 60s near St. George.

In Duchesne, highs will reach the mid 40s Monday and lows will drop into the low 20s. Near Logan, highs Monday will be near 40 degrees and lows will be in the upper 20s.

Utahns can also breath easy Monday, as experts expect air quality to be good across the state.

Though most Utahns will likely welcome the warmer temperatures, they will create a moderate risk of snow slides all along the Wasatch Front, according to the Utah Avalanche Center. In the Uintas, the center reported a considerable avalanche risk Monday.

Similar weather patterns will continue Tuesday, with a gradual warming trend continuing throughout the week. In Salt Lake and Utah counties, highs Tuesday are again expected to reach the mid 50s and lows will drop into the 30s. Davis County will warm up and also reach similar temperatures by Tuesday.

High temperatures Tuesday in Duchesne and Cache counties will be in the 40s, with lows in the 20s.

Forecasters expect high temperatures around 70 degrees Tuesday in St. George, with lows in the lower 40s.
