If the end of the Mayan calendar on Friday portends Doomsday, then it could indeed be a cold day in . . . heck. If we all wake up, though, it will still be a cold day in Utah.
You place your climatological bets and takes your chances. Either way bundle up, Friday's also the first official day of winter. And maybe, Thank God it's Friday, after all.
Those skeptics at the National Weather Service brazenly predict that after overnight lows in the 10-15 degree range, northern Utahns will live to see high temperatures Friday in the upper-30s and low-40s under sunny, if chilly skies.
