Reluctantly, winter weather is easing its grip on northern Utah as spring inexorably waxes stronger.
Tuesday's forecast for the Wasatch Front calls for a 20 percent chance of rainfall in the valleys, and a possible dusting of mountain snowfall under partly cloudy skies. High temperatures will range into the upper-50s, though, a 10-degree improvement over the forecast for Monday.
Winter is long gone in southern Utah, however. Tuesday's climatological menu features highs in the mid- to upper-70s under gusty, partly cloudy skies. That was a few degrees warmer than the forecast for Utah's Dixie on Monday.
