Utah forecast: Friday brings sunshine and thunderstorms
First Published May 22 2014 07:44 am • Last Updated May 22 2014 09:43 pm

Utah’s week-ending sunshine, punctuated by thunderstorms, is the kind of forecast musical pilgrim Bob Dylan might like.

So, when you take shelter as clouds thicken and the skies rumble, fire up "Thunder on the Mountain" on that iPod and listen as he rasps: "Feel like my soul is beginning to expand, look into my heart and you will sort of understand."

Oh, yeah. The mix of highs in the upper-70s along the Wasatch Front on Thursday and again Friday — and mid-80s in southern Utah — along with Friday afternoon’s rain and thunder, can do that to you. Thursday’s high of 84 degrees in Salt Lake City was the hottest day of the year so far.

The Utah Division of Air Quality graded the entire state as "green" for healthy air quality entering the weekend.

The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website’s pollen index was "very high" for oak and "moderate" for cedar and sycamore.
