Sunshine, rain even snow — that’s a Utah spring
Air quality » Stormy weather means ‘Green’ grades statewide.
First Published Mar 20 2013 07:09 am • Last Updated Mar 20 2013 09:03 am

It’s spring, and in Utah that can mean sunshine one day and thunderstorms, rain and even snowfall the next.

Indeed, northern Utah’s mid-week forecast seemed oblivious to the official start of spring with the advent of the Vernal Equinox at 5:02 a.m. Wednesday. And after a day of intermittent rainfall and evening thunderstorms, the Wasatch Front was expecting snow showers early Thursday and again in the afternoon.

High temperatures were to range in the mid-40s Thursday, down from Wednesday’s upper-50s.

Springtime was making more of an impression in breezy southern Utah, though. Highs on Thursday were to reach the mid-70s, mirroring Wednesday’s forecast.

Air quality statewide heading toward the weekend was rated "Green," or healthy statewide, according to the Utah Division of Air Quality.

The Utah Avalanche Center graded the mountains in the Logan, Skyline and Uintas districts at "moderate" risk for dangerous backcountry snow slides, while the remainder of the state’s mountains earned "low" avalanche risk assessments.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature Thursday was pegged at 44, up from Wednesday’s forecast of 57 degrees; Ogden looked for 43 and 55 degrees, respectively; Provo 49 and 60; Logan 37 and 45; Wendover 50 and 59; Duchesne 48 and 56; Cedar City 57 and 65; St. George 74 and 76; and Moab 64 and 68 degrees.
