First Published Mar 03 2014 06:51 am • Last Updated Mar 03 2014 08:50 am

Northern Utah’s mountains braced for a series of winter storms as the new week got underway, while the denizens of the region’s valleys brushed off their umbrellas.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the Wasatch Range both north and south of Interstate 80 beginning 10 p.m. Monday and running through 10 p.m. Tuesday. Snowfall of up to a foot was expected in the higher elevations.

The advisory area included a swath of territory from Logan extending south through Ogden, Salt Lake City, Provo and Nephi, as well as a portion of the Uintas in northeastern Utah.

The Salt Lake and Tooele valleys looked for evening rain showers Tuesday with high temperatures were forecast to be in the low-50s, down about 10 degrees from Monday’s forecast.

Southern Utahns expected partly cloudy skies and little or no rain, however, as daytime highs flirted with the low 70s.

New, heavy snowfall coupled with above-freezing daytime temperatures kept the risk for potentially deadly snowslides at "high" in the Uintas, according to the Utah Avalanche Center. The Logan and Moab mountains were at "considerable" risk for avalanches, while the Ogden, Salt Lake and Provo districts earned "moderate" risk grades.
