Northern Utahns looked for a break from valley rains and mountain snows on Wednesday with mostly sunny and clear skies replacing storm clouds along the Wasatch Front.

However, overnight lows were to remain chilly. Indeed, the National Weather Service put a section of southeastern Utah from Green River to Moab under a Freeze Watch beginning Tuesday night and extending into mid-morning Wednesday.

Overnight temperatures in the advisory area were expected to dip into the mid-20s, a growing season-ending event for vulnerable crops.

Low temperatures along the Wasatch Front were forecast to be only slightly warmer, with the mercury sliding into the mid-30s. Daytime highs were to be in the mid-50s Wednesday, the same temperature range expected for Tuesday.

Southern Utah is holding on to balmier autumn weather, though, with highs in the low-70s and overnight temperatures in the low-40s.

The Utah Division of Air Quality graded the entire state as being "Green," or healthy, and the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website’s pollen index listed all allergens as being at low levels.

Salt Lake City’s high for Wednesday was to be 55, up 1 degree from Tuesday; Ogden looked for 53 degrees both days; Provo 54 and 51 degrees, respectively; Logan 54 and 51; Wendover 55 and 51; Duchesne 50 and 44; Cedar City 57 and 53; St. George 69 and 70; and Moab 60 and 59 degrees.
