British novelist Susan Ertz once mused that, "Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon."
This weekend, Utahns will get the chance to figure such things out, both in the earthy microcosmic moment and its metaphysical interlude.
The National Weather Service predicts an unseasonable, fall-like storm system will dominate the Wasatch Front Saturday and Sunday, having arrived from the northwest by Friday afternoon and eventually aiming its thunder, lightning and rain showers at the central heart of the state.
Along with the storm clouds and stiff breezes, the region will see high temperatures on Saturday dip into the upper-60s — a dramatic drop from Friday's forecast of highs in the mid-80s. Sunday brings more precipitation and daytime temperatures in the mid-70s.
