Shaking off recent high winds, rain and snow, Utah's weather patterns eased back into spring as the state entered the mid-week.
Northern Utah awoke to sunny Wednesday skies minus the gusts of up to 60 mph that pelted the region earlier in the week. More spring-like weather was forecast to continue on Thursday, too, with high temperatures warming into the mid-50s ahead of evening rain showers possible.
Southern Utahns, however, had a mixed climatological bag: highs near 70 degrees, but north winds rising from 10-20 mph Wednesday morning to 15-25 mph late in the afternoon. Highs on Thursday were expected to reach the mid-70s, but the region also looked for afternoon showers.
