For Utah's weekend forecast, here's what to know: first came the ice, now comes the snow.
Along the Wasatch Front, temperatures were to warm slightly from a week-long spate of record-setting, sub-freezing and, in places, sub-zero readings. Saturday's forecast called for highs in the mid-20s with overnight lows in the mid-teens — a 5-7 degree swing upward for both highs and lows from Friday.
Southern Utah, too, expected temperatures a bit warmer on Saturday, when highs were expected to reach the upper-30s, up from Friday's mid-30s. Overnight lows in the mid-20s were predicted.
What the National Weather Service described as a "moderate" snowstorm should hit the entire state over the weekend, however. Forecasters issued a Winter Storm Watch for Utah north to south Saturday morning through Sunday afternoon.
