The weather will be partly cloudy and fair on Wednesday with a few lingering snow showers mainly near the mountains in Utah, the Salt Lake office of the National Weather Service says.

There will be breezy easterly canyon winds with gusts to 35 mph Wednesday morning. Lows will be in the upper teens through the low 20s. Highs will be in the mid-40s.Forecasters said a cold northeastern flow aloft will hover over the Wasatch Front through Wednesday; the associated air mass will be drying.

That will be a substantial change from Monday's storm, which dumped substantial amounts of snow on the state.

Low temperatures Tuesday morning were mostly in the 20s. The coldest temperature was 20 degrees at Richfield, with the mildest being 34 at Wendover.

A cold upper level low-pressure area was expected to continue developing southward over Utah, creating favorable conditions for snow over the southern mountains. Higher amounts are expected in some areas, said Ed Carle, a lead forecaster at the Weather Service.

Motorists traveling in the southern mountains were urged to be prepared for winter driving conditions, allowing extra time to reach their destinations.
