The poet Adelaide Crapsey may have summed up Utah's weekend forecast this way: "Listen ... with faint dry sound, like steps of passing ghosts, the leaves, frost-crisp'd, break from the trees, and fall."
Throughout the state, Saturday will shiver into dawn after overnight temperatures that neared, and in some cases were far below freezing. That pattern mirrors Friday's forecast, when the National Weather Service had a freeze warning in place for southeastern Utah, predicting lows near 20 degrees from Green River running south through Moab, Blanding and Bluff.
Along the Wasatch Front, high temperatures Saturday were to range into the low 50s, with overnight lows in the mid-30s under partly cloudy skies. Southern Utahns will still enjoy early autumn-like weather, though, with highs Saturday in the low 70s and overnight lows in the mid-40s.
