New snow expected in northern, northeastern ranges.

Valley rain and mountain snow is making an encore in northern Utah with the Wasatch and western Uinta mountains expecting a blanket of white up to 10 inches deep by Tuesday morning.

The National Weather Service began Monday with the state’s mountainous spine from Logan running south through Ogden, Salt Lake City and Provo to Nephi and Price under a Winter Weather Advisory.

Northeastern Utah’s Uintas were under a Winter Storm Warning through 6 a.m. Tuesday with nearly a foot of snow, winds of 15 mph and low visibility predicted.

Travel caution was urged through icy high mountain passes, where snowfall was predicted to be especially heavy at times.

Temperatures Tuesday were forecast to be in the low- to mid-50s, a few degrees warmer than Monday. Rain showers, punctuated by morning thunderstorms, were to lash the valley floors, with snow expected along some mountain benches and higher elevations.

Southern Utahns looked for highs Tuesday in the upper-60s under sunny, breezy and dry skies, the same forecast for Utah’s Dixie as Monday’s.

The Utah Division of Air Quality graded the entire state as being "Green," or healthy, and the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website’s pollen index listed all allergens as being at low levels.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature Tuesday was pegged at 54 degrees, down from the 51 forecast for Monday; Ogden expected 52 and 49 degrees, respectively; Provo 51 and 50; Logan 51 and 49; Wendover 51 and 52; Duchesne 44 and 50; Cedar City 53 and 54; St. George 69 and 68; and Moab 56 and 61 degrees.
