It’s not yet spring, but Utah’s weather felt a lot like it was as the week gets underway.
The National Weather Service predicted high temperatures near 60 degrees for the Wasatch Front on Tuesday under partly cloudy skies — pretty much the same forecast as for Monday. Overnight lows will be just above freezing.
Southern Utah was looking for 70-degree days, overnight lows in the mid-30s and clear, sunny skies.
The Utah Division of Air Quality forecast "green," or healthy breathing conditions statewide.
The Uintas remained at "high" risk for avalanches in the backcountry, while the Utah Avalanche Center rated the mountains above Logan at "considerable" risk, while Ogden, Provo and Moab earn a "moderate" grade.
