Utahns can finally take a deep breath.

But only for the next two days.

By Tuesday that gunky inversion is expected to start building again with a forecast of a "yellow" or moderate air quality day.

But Sunday and Monday are predicted to be "green," or good, air quality days, everywhere in the state except Weber County, which goes into a "yellow" day Monday.

But be careful not to give a big sigh of relief in Utah's backcountry.

The Logan and Uinta mountain ranges were under a considerable risk of avalanches on Sunday, according to the Utah Avalanche Center.

The rest of the state's ranges were under a moderate risk of snowslides.
