If you take a walk one of these autumn days, you might take Helen Hunt Jackson's advice to count like misers, hour by hour, October's bright blue weather.

The National Weather Service has another beautiful fall forecast for Utah's mid-week. Under mostly clear, sunny skies, the Wasatch Front looks for daytime highs Wednesday in the upper-70s, up a few degrees from Tuesday's expectations. Overnight lows will be in the low- to mid-40s.

Southern Utahns will bask in the upper-70s to low-80s during the day with overnight lows in the mid-50s, again under mostly clear skies — though there is a slight chance of rain showers Wednesday morning.

The Utah Division of Air Quality grades the entire state as "Green," or healthy for breathability during the mid-week period.

Salt Lake City's expects a high of 77 on Wednesday, up from 73 forecast for Tuesday; Ogden looks for 73 and 69 degrees, respectively; Provo 77 and 75; Logan 74 and 70; Wendover 73 and 68; Duchesne 72 and 71; Cedar City 72 and 74; St. George 81 and 85; and Moab 80 and 78 degrees.
