Sunny skies are ahead, but northern Utahns will have to wait through about a day and a half of the wet spring weather first.

A second storm system will keep the chance of rain and thunderstorms coming, mostly in northern Utah, on Sunday through midday Monday. There's also a chance snow will accumulate above 8,000 feet, according to the National Weather Service.

Besides damp, cloudy skies, the system is expected to keep daytime temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s for northern Utah through the beginning of the week. Southern Utahns, on the other hand, can look forward to sun and highs in the lower 80s.

Rivers and streams will still be very swift and cold, so the NWS urges Utahns to exercise extreme caution near the waterways and to closely watch children and pets.

Unless wildfires start, the Utah Division of Air Quality expects the entire state to have healthy air going into next week. As of Saturday, though, there was still a very high amount of mulberry pollen in the air, as well as high levels of maple, oak, sycamore and grass, according to the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma index.

Salt Lake City's high temperature Sunday is expected to be 59 degrees, and 65 on Monday; Ogden looked for 58 and 64 degrees, respectively; Provo 60 and 64; Logan 60 and 63; Wendover 62 and 67; Duchesne 61 and 63; Cedar City 63 and 65; St. George 82 and 83; and Moab 74 and 71 degrees.
