Utah forecast: Balmy late summer along the Wasatch

First Published Sep 04 2014 08:05 am • Last Updated Sep 14 2014 08:46 pm

Thomas Nashe knew the exhilaration of late summer was timeless, not unlike the weather patterns of Utah’s Wasatch Range and redrocks desert.

Considering northern Utah’s late-week forecast for daytime highs in the upper-70s to low-80s under mostly sunny skies, the 16th century English poet might sigh, "Fair summer droops, droop men and beasts therefore, So fair a summer look for nevermore."

Nashe could find more encouragement for prolonged, hotter weather in the southern reaches of the state. Utah’s Dixie looked for highs Friday in the mid-90s with a slight chance of rain to cool things down. That was a near-mirror image of Thursday’s expectations.

The Utah Division of Air Quality forecast "green," or healthy conditions for the entire state on Friday.

However, Nashe’s poetic lament in "Fair Summer Droops" that, "The earth is hell when thou leav’st to appear," could apply to allergy sufferers as the weekend draws near.

The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website warned Thursday that grass, chenopods and ragweed are all at "very high" levels on its pollen index, with sagebrush and mold an only slightly less miserable"high."
