Utah’s forecast: Wet in the north, rainy and wild in south
Colder, too » Friday highs will dip by double digits from Thursday temperatures.

This Friday’s Utah weather forecast may not be garbage, but it is by Garbage: I’m only happy when it rains, I’m only happy when it’s complicated.

Consider this from the National Weather Service, not an alternative rock band’s prognostication but just as wet and potentially wild — northern Utahns will see the skies weep on Friday as daytime temperatures dip into the low- to mid-60s. Overnight lows heading into the weekend will be in the low- to mid-40s.

Southern Utahns, meanwhile, will be getting rain, thunder, lightning and perhaps even some hail as a slow-moving storm works its way into the state from southern Nevada. Highs Friday will be in the low- to mid-70s while nighttime temperatures will be in the upper-40s.

The Utah Department of Transportation has taken note of the change in weather, too, issuing a road weather alert for northern and central Utah’s high mountains. Areas of slush will clog some high-elevation routes between Friday morning and Saturday morning.

All that atmospheric stirring does have a singular health benefit, however: air quality statewide will be graded "Green," or satisfactory, according to the Utah Division of Air Quality.

Salt Lake City expects a high temperature Friday of 65, down dramatically from Thursday’s 79-degree forecast; Ogden will reach 62 Friday, down from Thursday’s predicted 76; Provo looks for 64 and 80 degrees, respectively; Logan 64 and 76; Wendover 62 and 72; Duchesne 57 and 72; Cedar City 53 and 68; St. George 63 and 76; and Moab 68 and 78 degrees.
