OGDEN -- There is still a considerable to high chance for avalanches in the Northern Utah mountains, warns the Utah Avalanche Center.

The center issued an avalanche watch in light of the rapidly warming temperatures and direct sunlight expected through Tuesday. The weather easily creates unstable and dangerous avalanche conditions on all slopes, particularly on steep terrain facing east, west and south, according to the center.

The watch does not include ski areas or highways normally kept safe through avalanche control.
