Utah's weekend forecast, courtesy of bluesman Fruitland Jackson: "The storm is rising and the rain begins to fall."
The Wasatch Front's version of his Falling Rain Blues is to debut Friday afternoon, as isolated showers pelt the region, driven by winds of 10-20 mph. More precipitation is forecast for Friday night and continuing, off and on, throughout Saturday.
High temperatures on Saturday are to range into the mid-50s, down a few degrees from Friday's expectations.
Mostly cloudy skies and highs in the upper-60s were predicted for southern Utah, though Saturday afternoon thunderstorms, along with winds of 20 mph, were on the horizon for the redrocks region.
