There may be a dusting of snow on northern Utah's highest peaks, but summer-like weather isn't through with Utah yet.

The poet Emily Dickenson wouldn't mind, reminding that, "As Summer into Autumn slips, and yet we sooner say, 'The Summer' than 'the Autumn,' lest we turn the sun away."

After a cloudy, occasionally rainy Wednesday, northern Utahns looked for clearing skies and rising temperatures as the weekend approaches. High temperatures were expected to range from the high-60s to low-70s , heating up to the low-80s from Thursday through Saturday.

Under partly cloudy but steadily clearing skies, southern Utah expected high temperatures in the mid-80s to low-90s at the mid-week, adding a few degrees as the weekend approached.

"Inebriate of air am I," Emily might add after noting the "Green," or healthy air quality grades statewide issued by the Utah Division of Air Quality for the Wednesday through Friday period.

Salt Lake City looked for a high of 74 Thursday after Wednesday's forecast for 70 degrees; Ogden expected 73 and 70 degrees, respectively; Provo 75 and 71; Logan 74 and 72; Wendover 75 and 74; Duchesne 71 and 64; Cedar City 76 and 72; St. George 89 and 86; and Moab 80 and 74 degrees.
