Sun, sun, sun, here it comes, northern Utah.

Under mostly clear skies, the Wasatch Front will bask in the upper-80s this weekend during the daylight hours and overnight lows around 60 degrees providing prime sleeping weather.

Vestiges of the past week’s thunderstorms will hang around a bit longer in southern Utah, however. In Utah’s Dixie high temperatures will range into the upper-90s Saturday with diminishing chances for isolated, light rainfall. Overnight lows will be in the upper-60s.

Meanwhile, the Utah Division of Air Quality gave its own gift to Utah for the weekend — a “Green,” or healthy air quality grade statewide.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature for Saturday was pegged at 87 degrees, up 2 degrees from Friday’s forecast; Ogden looked for 83 and 82 degrees, respectively; Provo 88 and 86; Logan 85 and 83; Wendover 85 and 83; Duchesne 79 and 77; Cedar City 86 and 84; St. George 98 and 96; and Moab 87 and 89 degrees.
