Utah forecast: Slightly cooler and drier north, warm south
Northern Utah looks for slightly cooler temperatures under partly cloudy skies as it enters the midweek, but after showers Tuesday night the region is in store for a dry Wednesday.
Highs Wednesday were expected to retreat into the upper-50s along the Wasatch Front from Tuesday’s upper-60s. Evening winds of 10-20 mph also were predicted by the National Weather Service.
Southern Utahns were to remain warm, though, with Wednesday highs around 80 degrees under mostly clear, sunny skies, a mirror forecast of that for Tuesday. Evening breezes in the 10-20 mph range were forecast as well.
The Utah Division of Air Quality hoisted its "green," or healthy for breathing banners statewide through the midweek period.
However, the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website reported cedar and maple pollen levels were "very high" as the week got underway, with oak "high," and cottonwood, ash and birch pollens at "moderate" levels.
