Northern Utah is getting a drier, sunnier break ahead of the expected return of spring showers later in the week.
The National Weather Service predicted highs in the low-70s under partly cloudy, breezy skies for Thursday, a scenario that was 5-7 degrees warmer than Wednesday's forecast. Rain showers were expected to return late Thursday night into early Friday along the Wasatch Front.
Southern Utah was downright balmy. Utah's Dixie looked for highs in the mid-80s Thursday, a few degrees warmer than Wednesday's forecast. Winds of 10-20 mph were predicted both days.
