Utah's occasionally wet midweek interlude is over. Up next: clear, breezy skies and abundant sunshine.
Thursday's highs will be in the upper-70s along the Wasatch Front, up a few degrees from Wednesday. Southerly winds of 10-20 mph will continue on Friday, with the mercury climbing into the upper-80s in the Salt Lake and Tooele valleys.
"Don't just stand there dreaming," the Grateful Dead's Jerry Garcia once rasped. "Get out the way, get out the way. Here comes sunshine."
Southern Utahns began Wednesday with scattered rain showers, but clearing skies by afternoon preceding highs in the mid-70s. However, the solar engine that generally rules Utah's Dixie will hit on all metaphorical cylinders come Thursday, when highs will be in the mid-80s.
