Forecast: A wet, wintry end ushers in N. Utah’s spring
Warm in Utah’s Dixie » Highs in the 70s for southern reaches of the state.
First Published Mar 25 2013 07:30 am • Last Updated Mar 25 2013 09:41 am

Reluctantly, winter weather is easing its grip on northern Utah as spring inexorably waxes stronger.

Tuesday’s forecast for the Wasatch Front calls for a 20 percent chance of rainfall in the valleys, and a possible dusting of mountain snowfall under partly cloudy skies. High temperatures will range into the upper-50s, though, a 10-degree improvement over the forecast for Monday.

Winter is long gone in southern Utah, however. Tuesday’s climatological menu features highs in the mid- to upper-70s under gusty, partly cloudy skies. That was a few degrees warmer than the forecast for Utah’s Dixie on Monday.

The Utah Division of Air Quality hoisted its "Green" flags statewide, predicting healthy breathing conditions into the mid-week period.

But that warmer weather and the mix of rain and snow kept the risk for potentially dangerous mountain snow slides at "moderate" early this week, according to the Utah Avalanche Center.

High temperatures Tuesday were expected to hit 57 Tuesday in Salt Lake City, up from Monday’s forecast for 48 degrees; Ogden looked for 56 and 47 degrees, respectively; Provo 60 and 51; Logan 49 and 40; Wendover 56 and 50; Duchesne 52 and 43; Cedar City 67 and 58; St. George 78 and 72; and Moab 63 and 52 degrees.
