Utah forecast: The Cure? Summer sunny, warm in last days

First Published Sep 02 2014 08:00 am • Last Updated Sep 02 2014 08:00 am

The Cure had some thoughts about the last days of summer, that they never felt so cold . . . never felt so old.

Well, for Utahns, that time is not yet. True, the passing of the Labor Day weekend unofficially marks the end of summer, but official autumn does not take the calender throne until Sept. 22 — and the Beehive State has warm, sunny days ahead.

The Wasatch Front looked for daytime highs in the upper-80s on Wednesday with breezes of 10-20 mph, a forecast nearly identical to that for Tuesday. Overnight lows will be in the 50s and 60s.

Southern Utahns, meanwhile, anticipated the mercury flirting with triple digits both days. Overnight lows for Utah’s Dixie will range into the upper-60s.

In retrospect, not the kind of days an alternative, post-punk, primordial gothic rock band would sing about. Some folks remain dark and tormented on the brightest days. Go figure.

The Utah Division of Air Quality forecast "yellow," or compromised conditions for most of the state. Only Box Elder, Cache, Washington, Carbon, Duchesne and Uintah counties earned "green," or healthy air quality grades heading into the midweek.

The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website noted that chenopods were "very high," mold, ragweed and grass were "high," and sagebrush "moderate" on its pollen index.
