Say goodbye to balmy autumn; here comes plummeting temperatures, rain and snow.
The National Weather Service said Friday's highs along the Wasatch Front will dip from 10 to 15 degrees from Thursday's temperatures in the upper-50s, after Thursday's partly cloudy skies turn wet and gray on Friday ahead of a cold, snowy weekend.
Southern Utahns will escape the severity of the changing forecast. The daytime temperatures on Friday will be in the mid-60s, a 5-7 degree shift downward from Thursday's highs. Utah's Dixie expected partly cloudy skies, but no precipitation.
Forecasters did place the entire state under a Special Weather Statement, warning that the cooling trend toward wintry conditions would extend into next week.
