Utah's balmy, sunny late-week forecast would make Frank Sinatra croon, and Alien Ant Farm rock with abandon.

Considering northern Utah's mid-70s on Thursday and Friday, the Chairman of the Board might take Ma Nature by the hand and belt out, "You make me so young, you make me feel spring has sprung."

Basking in the southern Utah's mid- to upper-80s, AAF's alternative rockers would ramp up the decibels, declaring,"Spring is here and we're in full swing."

Young or old, smooth and melodic or raw and thunderous, it's spring, both an explosion of new life and a rejuvenating caress.

Wherever you go in the Beehive State, the breathing will be easy. The Utah Division of Air Quality has hoisted its "green," or healthy air banners for all monitoring regions.

Still, like everything in life, there is something to complain about — especially if you are an allergy sufferer. The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website warns that pollen levels are "very high" for a plethora of trees and plants, including cedar, cottonwood, oak, maple, ash and birch.
