Utahns can expect typical spring weather the next few days, when it will be possible to ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon.

Skies are expected to be clear in Salt Lake City until Tuesday night, and temperatures will be mild during the day but dip into the cool 30s at night.

The National Weather Service predicts a high of 54 Sunday, rising to 66 by Tuesday. Then clouds are expected to roll in, with possible rain on Wednesday and even snow on Thursday evening.

Families enjoying spring break and heading south to St. George or Moab should have good camping weather, though they might want to keep firewood on hand for still-cool evenings.

The St. George forecast calls for highs of 70s during the day most of the week with lows dipping into the 40s at night. There is a slight chance of rain Wednesday.

Moab should be delightful, with highs slowly increasing to 72 degrees Wednesday, when it could be breezy.

The spring weather also appears to be helping air quality as well. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality reported Saturday that air quality will be good Sunday and Monday across the Wasatch Front.
