It's still March. So don't count on the weather always being too sunny, warm or settled.

More snow Thursday, the first full day of spring, was a pretty sure sign that winter is here to stay - at least for a while.Nearly every area of the state received some moisture, and the precipitation is likely to continue off and on during the weekend and into early next week along the Wasatch Front.

On Saturday the clouds will increase, but temperatures still will be in the mid- to upper 50s. Rain or snow showers will increase Sunday, and rain or snow could fall Monday or Tuesday, said William J. Alder, meteorologist in charge of the Salt Lake office of the National Weather Service.

Thursday, Provo and Springville each received 4 inches of snow; Nephi, Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef, 3 inches; Spanish Fork and Monticello, 1; Price Canyon, 8; Soldier Summit, 2 to 3; Kanab and Milford, 2; Alta, 9; and Huntington Canyon and Long Valley Junction, 5.

Water amounts recorded included 0.34, Provo-Brigham Young University; 0.30, Springville; 0.20, Monticello; 0.53, Alta; 0.12, Salt Lake International Airport; and 0.49, Hanksville.
