Northern Utah's recent pattern of morning snowfall will continue at least into the mid-week as spring weather struggles to return to the region against stubborn winter storm patterns.

Indeed, much of the northern half of the state was under a Winter Weather Advisory as Tuesday dawned. Between 2 and 5 inches of snowfall, heavier in some higher elevation locales, was expected to fall by afternoon when the advisory — for an area stretching from the Utah-Wyoming border through Vernal and Duchesne, central Utah's Nephi and Richfield and then west through the desert to the Nevada line — was set to expire.

The temperatures along the Wasatch Front were expected to climb into the mid-40s Wednesday, mirroring Tuesday's forecast highs.

Periodic rain showers were predicted for southern Utah, where forecasters also issued a Wind Advisory that expired at 4 a.m. Tuesday. High temperatures for Utah's Dixie Wednesday were to be in the low-60s, the same range as pegged for Tuesday.

The Utah Division of Air Quality rated breathability statewide in the "Green," or healthy category.

Salt Lake City's high Wednesday was pegged at 46, the same as expected Tuesday; Ogden looked for 46 and 44 degrees, respectively; Provo 45s; Logan 44 and 43; Wendover 45 and 46; Duchesne 39 and 44; Cedar City 45 and 44; St. George 61s; and Moab 51 and 63 degrees.
