Rain snow » Cooler temperatures and a wet weekend ahead.
First Published Dec 05 2012 07:04 am • Last Updated Dec 05 2012 10:15 am

Finally, some "normal" fall weather is on the horizon for Utah.

After a spell of temperatures 10-20 degrees above normal and precipitation a rarity, the state expected valley rains and mountain snow showers on Thursday — and that wet shift is likely to continue through the weekend.

The National Weather Service predicts high temperatures in northern Utah will range into the upper-40s on Thursday, down about 10 degrees from Wednesday’s forecast. Rain, which was to begin in earnest Wednesday night, was expected to hit the region periodically through Thursday as well.

Southern Utahns were looking for highs in low- to mid-60s on Thursday, about 5 degrees cooler than Wednesday’s predictions. However, while increasing cloud cover was expected, little rainfall was predicted in Utah’s Dixie.

The Utah Avalanche Center rated the risk for dangerous mountain slope snow slides at "low" going into the latter part of the week.

The Utah Division of Air Quality predicted "Green," or healthy breathability conditions for the entire state.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature Thursday was pegged at 49 degrees, down from 53 forecast for Wednesday; Ogden expected 47 and 48 degrees, respectively; Provo 51 and 55; Logan 45 and 47; Wendover 48 and 49; Duchesne 47 and 50; Cedar City 55 and 62; St. George 65 and 67; and Moab 55 and 60 degrees.
