Utah forecast: A weekend for getting out, breathing deeply
Clear and sunny » Highs of 70s in north, 90s in the south.
First Published May 31 2013 07:57 am • Last Updated Jun 01 2013 04:51 pm

Clear skies, night and day, make for Utah weekend forecast worthy of singer Judy Collins exploration of a time for gathering "the silver apples of the moon, the golden apples of the sun."

Northern Utah’s Wasatch Front will offer both climate and opportunities for walking "through long green dappled grass," as poet W.B. Yeats originally wrote — along with boating, hiking mountain paths or biking the region’s trails. High temperatures Saturday will range into the mid-70s, up a few degrees from Friday’s forecast.

Southern Utah’s Dixie will see the mercury climb into the 90s this weekend, with only an occasional cloud to decorate blue horizons.

You can breathe deeply, too. The Utah Division of Air Quality — with the exceptions of "Yellow," or compromised grades for Duchesne and Weber counties on Saturday and Sunday — rates the state’s breathability at "Green," or healthy.

Allergy sufferers, meanwhile, can take some comfort in the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma’s report: As of Friday, only mold and grass rated "moderate" grades on the pollen index; all the other irritants were "low."

Salt Lake City’s high on Saturday as expected to reach 76 degrees, up from Friday’s forecast for 70; Ogden looked for 72 and 66 degrees, respectively; Provo 76 and 70; Logan 72 and 65; Wendover 74 and 71; Duchesne 72 and 70; Cedar City 81 and 77; St. George 95 and 93; and Moab 79 and 78 degrees.
