Dust off that sombrero, launder those cutoffs and slather on the sunblock lotion, because it’s going to be that sort of gloriously sunny, spring weekend in Utah.

Along the Wasatch Front on Saturday, temperatures will flirt with 80 degrees, up a few degrees from Friday’s forecast from the National Weather Service.

In southern Utah, Friday’s isolated thunderstorms and showers were giving way to highs in the mid-80s and clearing skies.

The Utah Division of Air Quality hoisted its “Green,” or healthy air banners statewide, but allergy sufferers still had cause for the sniffles this weekend: Intermountain Allergy & Asthma’s pollen index had mulberry off the charts as of Friday, while maple, sycamore, ash oak and cottonwood came in at “high.”

Salt Lake City’s high temperature Saturday was set at 80, up 2 degrees from Friday’s forecast; Ogden looked for 78 and 77 degrees, respectively; Provo 80 and 77; Logan 78 and 77; Wendover 82 and 77; Duchesne 75 and 72; Cedar City 77 and 72; St. George 90 and 85; and Moab 90 and 77 degrees.
