Autumn is nature reminding us that life and beauty are fleeting. As songwriter Chad Sugg puts it: "Love the trees until their leaves fall off, then encourage them to try again next year."
Utah's mid-week weather cries out for such thoughts. The National Weather Service has a sunny, cooler and breezy fall forecast for the Wasatch Front, with temperatures ranging from upper-30s overnight to mid-60s during the day.
Southern Utahns look for highs near 80 degrees on Thursday with overnight lows in the mid-50s.
