Utah forecast: A late-winter preview of spring
First Published Mar 18 2013 07:49 am • Last Updated Mar 18 2013 11:15 pm

Under partly cloudy skies, Utah is yawning and stretching from its long winter’s sleep and awakening to spring.

Officially, the Vernal Equinox that marks the beginning of the new season doesn’t arrive until Wednesday. But already, north to south, the state’s forecast was well on the way to balmier times.

Northern Utahns looked for high temperatures Tuesday in the upper-50s, up a few degrees from Monday’s forecast. In the southern reaches of the state, spring’s preview was well under way with highs Tuesday pegged in the mid- to upper-70s, mirroring Monday’s forecast.

The Utah Division of Air Quality hoisted its "Green," or healthy breathability banners statewide going toward the mid-week.

The Utah Avalanche Center rated the Wasatch Front’s mountains above Logan, Ogden, Salt Lake City and Provo at low for the risk of dangerous backcountry snowslides, with the Skyline and Uintas districts graded at moderate for possible avalanches.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature Tuesday was predicted to hit 57, up from Monday’s forecast for 52 degrees; Ogden looked for 54 and 48 degrees, respectively; Provo 60 and 55; Logan 44 and 40; Wendover 56 and 53; Duchesne 54 and 50; Cedar City 64 and 58; St. George 77 and 74; and Moab 67 and 61 degrees.
