Utah forecast: A lot of sun, a little rain from north to south
It's been a tough, rough week. You need to laugh, and when the sun is out, you've got something you can laugh about.
Apologies to Paul McCartney, but northern Utah's Saturday weather could be summed up with that Good Day Sunshine kind of forecast: bright skies, highs in the 70s during the days and a 30 percent chance of rain showers by the evening hours.
On Sunday, too, there will be rain coming down on a sunny day, if you give Creedence to such predictions. The National Weather Service says showers will punctuate the day as daytime temperatures dip into the mid-50s along the Wasatch Front.
Southern Utahns look for highs in the low-80s Saturday with periodic rain showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening hours. On Sunday, Utah's Dixie will dawn with mostly clear skies and daytime highs in the mid-70s.
The Utah Division of Air Quality rated the entire state as "green," or healthy for breathing.
Allergy sufferers, however, could not catch a break heading into the weekend. The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website warned that pollen levels are "very high" for cedar, oak and birch; "high" for cottonwood and sycamore; and "moderate" for willow, ash and mold.
