Friday was expected to be a gorgeous day across the state with sunny skies and warm temperatures.

In fact it’s expected to be so warm, Salt Lake City might break its high temperature record set back in 2004, National Weather Service meteorologist Christine Kruse said.

Kruse said meteorologists were expecting temperatures to top out at 75 on Friday. The current record is 74, she said.

The sunny skies and warm temperatures were expected to linger through the weekend. Come Sunday, the region might tie another high if temperatures reach 75 as expected, she said.

The Utah Avalanche Center said a "considerable" chance of slides remained on the Salt Lake City and Western Uinta mountains. A "moderate" risk was in place for the mountains in Logan, Ogden, Provo and Moab. The Manti Skyline mountains were not rated Friday morning.

The air quality statewide was "green," or good, according to the Utah Division of Environmental Quality.

Salt Lake City looked for a high temperature of 75 on Friday and 73 on Saturday; Ogden was expected to top out 70 and 71, respectively; Provo, 73 and 72; Logan, 69 and 70; Wendover, 71 and 70; Duchesne, 69 and 69; Cedar City, 66 and 69; St. George, 77 and 78; and Moab, 76 and 77.
