Utahns receive a pot of golden sunshine at St. Patrick’s Day Parade
First Published Mar 15 2014 09:03 am • Last Updated Mar 15 2014 09:30 am

It’s the best of both worlds for Utahns on Saturday: The luck of the Irish, with decidedly un-Irish weather.

As scores of green-clad merrymakers descended on The Gateway mall in Salt Lake City’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade, Saturday brought blue skies and windbreaker-worthy temps that — with a minor interruption Monday — Utahns can expect to stick around for a while.

The National Weather Service pegs Saturday’s high at 57 for Salt Lake City, with an overnight low of 37. That’s fairly typical of the forecast for the next week, excepting a 30 percent chance of showers on Monday. In the southern half of the state, St. George expects a high of 72 on Saturday and 75 on Sunday, Cedar City 56/65, and Moab 60/63 with some strong wind gusts Saturday.

In the spirit of the day, the Utah Division of Air Quality has a "green," or unrestricted condition, for all counties.
