Take a chilly Wasatch Front morning walk among the trees, see the leaves turning color and you might agree with Yoko Ono: Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.

The National Weather Service predicted highs in the upper-60s under clear, sunny skies for northern Utah Friday, mirroring Thursday’s forecast. Overnight lows as the weekend approaches will be in the mid-30s to low-40s.

In southern Utah, highs in the upper-80s and overnight lows in the low- to mid-50s were expected under mostly clear and sunny horizons.

The Utah Division of Air Quality, meanwhile, graded breathability statewide as “Green,” or healthy.

Salt Lake City looked for a high temperature of 64 degrees, down five degrees from Thursday’s forecast high; Ogdenites expected highs of 60 and 65 degrees, respectively; Provo 67 and 73; Logan 60 and 65; Wendover 64 and 69; Duchesne 62 and 66; Cedar City 75 and 80; St. George 89 and 90; and Moab 78 and 83 degrees.
