Friday may be one of the last days to enjoy summer-like weather, as a cold front will move into Utah this weekend and cause a drop in temperatures just in time for the first day of fall.

According to the National Weather Service, a cold front is expected to cross Utah, bringing gusty winds on Saturday and cool, possibly rainy weather on Sunday.
