Emily Dickinson once observed: "November always seemed to me the Norway of the year."

Well, Uff da. She could've been giving northern Utah's mid-week weather forecast: chilly, with cloudy skies and highs in the upper-30s to low-40s and overnight lows in the mid- to upper-20s.

Southern Utahns, according to the National Weather Service, could expect less shivering come Wednesday with highs in the low- to mid-60s under sunny skies. However, overnight lows in Utah's Dixie will still be just above freezing.

Meanwhile, with the weekend's snowstorms settling in on the region's peaks and mountain slopes, the Utah Avalanche Center rated the Wasatch Range's Ogden and Salt Lake districts at "considerable" risk for dangerous snow slides. The Logan, Provo, Uintas and Skyline districts rated "moderate" for avalanche risks.

The Utah Division of Air Quality declared all of the state's monitored districts had earned "Green," or healthy quality grades for the mid-week.

Salt Lake City expected a high temperature of 42 degrees on Wednesday, up from 41 forecast for Tuesday; Ogden looked for 45 and 40 degrees, respectively; Provo 48 and 41; Logan 48 and 40; Wendover 47 and 41; Duchesne 45 and 42; Cedar City 56 and 53; St. George 68 and 65; and Moab 52 and 44 degrees.
