Utah forecast: Valley rain, mountain snow to ease by mid-week

First Published Mar 04 2014 08:12 am • Last Updated Mar 04 2014 08:34 am

Rain pelted the urban valleys of northern Utah while up to 10 inches of new snow blanketed the region’s mountains on Tuesday.

However, the National Weather Service expected precipitation through late Tuesday to taper off by early Wednesday morning. Forecasters issued a Winter Weather Advisory, expiring at 10 p.m. Tuesday, for a stretch of northern Utah extending from Logan south through Ogden, Salt Lake City, Provo and Nephi, as well as into the western Uintas.

The heaviest snowfall was expected north of Interstate 80.

The Salt Lake and Tooele valleys looked for high temperatures Wednesday in the low-50s after overnight lows in the upper-30s, trading Tuesday’s rain clouds for overcast skies at the mid-week.

Southern Utah looked for highs on Wednesday in the low-70s under sunny skies, up a few degrees from Tuesday’s forecast.

The risk for potentially deadly snowslides is "high" in the Uintas, according to the Utah Avalanche Center. The Logan mountains were at "considerable" risk for avalanches, while the Ogden, Salt Lake, Provo and Moab districts earned "moderate" risk grades.

The Utah Division of Air Quality rated breathability statewide as "green," or healthy.
