Utah's early spring will continue Sunday with warming temperatures and spotty rain, but the backcountry remains a dangerous place.

The Utah Avalanche Center warns that the snowy mountains hold a considerable to high risk of avalanches on Sunday. The danger dips on Monday for the Salt Lake, Provo, Ogden and Moab ranges to a "moderate" level, but the Uintas, Skyline and Logan-area mountains remain considerable to high, according to the center.

Meanwhile, a slight to moderate chance of rain in northern Utah will continue through Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. Highs are expected to remain in the 50s, and even hit 60 in at least Salt Lake City and Provo by midweek.

Southern Utah can expect milder weather, with partly cloudy skies and highs in the 60s and potentially lower 70s through Wednesday.

The storm left more than a quarter inch of rain in downtown Salt Lake City, about 0.4 inches in Provo and more than half an inch in Ogden and Logan, according to the weather service.

The rain may not be anything for the history books, but the past's months highs and lows were. According to a weather service report released Sunday, this February was the fourth-warmest for Salt Lake City since record keeping began in 1874. The average temperature was 42.1 degrees, just below 1934's record of 42.2, according to the report.
