First Published Apr 15 2013 07:29 am • Last Updated Apr 15 2013 07:31 am

If there was a Twelve Step program for Mother Nature, she would be back to day one of spring — and nursing one heck of a winter hangover.

Northern Utah’, Monday morning commuters, having basked in a typical spring weekend, were surprised by up to 6 inches of snowfall in the mountains and a inch or two in the valleys. More of the same was expected Tuesday.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory beginning 6 p.m. Monday and running through Wednesday afternoon. The advisory area stretched along the Wasatch Plateau from the Utah-Wyoming border through Summit County to as far south as Manti and Richfield, and including the high Uintas to near Vernal and central Utah’s Price and Green River areas.

Up to 20 inches of mountain snow was predicted during the advisory period. Valley snowfall also was expected to continue, but little of that was expected to stick.

High temperatures Tuesday were to be in the low-40s along the Wasatch Front, a dip of 15-20 degrees from the weekend.

Southern Utahns, meanwhile, looked for breezy, occasionally wet weather stretching into the mid-week. High temperatures were forecast for the low- to mid-60s.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature Tuesday was pegged at 42, down from Monday’s chilly 46 degrees; Ogden 41 and 34 degrees, respectively; Provo 42 and 49; Logan 40 and 42; Wendover 44 and 45; Duchesne 42 and 47; Cedar City 44 and 61; St. George 65 and 76; and Moab 64 and 67 degrees.
