Utah forecast: A breezy, drier midweek is ahead
Winter Weather Advisory » After some rain and snow, warmer temperatures.
First Published Mar 11 2014 06:58 am • Last Updated Mar 11 2014 07:56 am

Northern Utahns looked for a midweek break from wet and windy weather in the wake of storms that brought valley rains and mountain snows earlier this week.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Weather Advisory to begin Tuesday, warning of up to 10 inches of new snowfall, driven by ridgetop winds of 60 mph, along the Wasatch and western Uinta mountains. That advisory expired at 6 p.m. Tuesday, and the forecast for Wednesday was far more springlike.

On Wednesday, the Salt Lake and Tooele valleys can look for high temperatures in the low-50s under sunny skies, a marked improvement from Tuesday’s rainy, snowy morning when afternoon highs should struggle to climb into the upper-40s.

Southern Utahns looked for a breezy Wednesday, though temperatures in the upper-60s — up a few degrees from Tuesday’s forecast — should make for a pleasant, if brisk, day.

The Utah Avalanche Center on Tuesday rated the mountains of Ogden, Salt Lake City and the Uintas at "considerable" risk for potentially deadly backcountry snowslides, while the Logan, Provo and Moab districts were "moderate" for avalanche risks.

The Utah Division of Air Quality was flying its "green," or healthy breathing flags for the entire state.
