Most of Utah was getting a break from the snow as the week began, but avalanche danger remained elevated in the state's mountainous backcountry.

The Utah Avalanche Center rated the mountains above Logan and the Uintas at "high" for the risk of potentially deadly snowslides, with the remainder of the state's mountains earning "considerable" risk grades.

The Utah Division of Air Quality issued "green," or healthy breathing statewide for Monday and Tuesday, though pollution-trapping air inversions were expected to return to Utah's urban valleys beginning Wednesday.

The Wasatch Front looked for highs Tuesday in the low-40s under mostly sunny skies with overnight lows in the low- to mid-20s, a mirror forecast of that for Monday.

Southern Utahns expected sunny skies and highs in the mid-50s and overnight lows around 30 degrees.
