Utah forecast: Cold snap a memory, warmer spring days ahead

First Published Apr 18 2013 07:38 am • Last Updated Apr 18 2013 07:39 am

Northern Utah expected Friday to break free of a cold snap that brought near record-low temperatures to the region earlier in the week.

Salt Lake City and rest of the northwestern quarter of the state awakened Thursday under a Hard Freeze Warning. The advisory was in place until 9 a.m. when the area was expected to shake off lows in the 20s overnight. A Hard Freeze Watch also was issued for much of the southeast quarter of the state through mid-morning.
