A moist winter storm system that moved into northern Utah Wednesday promised new snowfall for the region extending into the weekend.

The National Weather Service predicted that the light dusting of snow expected to begin Wednesday evening would grow heavier by Thursday. Accumulations of 1-2 inches in the valleys and 3-4 inches in the mountains along the Wasatch Front were expected.

High temperatures for the Salt Lake and Tooele valleys on Thursday were to range into the mid-30s, up a few degrees from Wednesday's forecast highs. Overnight lows were to dip into the low- to mid-20s.

Southern Utahns looked for highs in the low-50s and overnight lows in the upper-20s. While no snow was predicted in Utah's Dixie, there was a chance for early morning rain showers.

The Utah Avalanche Center rated the Ogden and Moab mountains at "considerable" risk for potentially deadly backcountry snowslides, while the rest of the state's slopes earned "moderate" risk grades.

The Utah Division of Air Quality forecast "green," or healthy breathing for the entire state for the latter part of this week.
