As Utah weather and faith go, it will truly be a Good Friday.
Temperatures on the day ushering in the Easter weekend were expected to climb into the low-70s under partly cloudy skies along the Wasatch Front, a forecast nearly mirroring that for Thursday.
Southern Utahns looked for sunny skies turning partly cloudy on Friday with the mercury soaring into the low-80s.
The Utah Division of Air Quality graded breathability at "green," or healthy for all state monitoring stations heading toward the weekend.
However, it was a mixed bag of pollens for allergy sufferers with the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website on Thursday ranking cedar at "very high" levels, oak and maple as "high" and sycamore at "moderate."
