Utah's wet weekend is giving way to drier conditions as the new week gets underway.
The National Weather Service predicted Tuesday along the Wasatch Front would feature partly cloudy skies and high temperatures in the upper-70s, after a forecast for Monday calling for diminishing thunderstorms and rain showers and highs in the mid-60s.
That warmer and drier trend came in the wake of a cool and rain-laden weekend in northern Utah. The NWS reported that the Wasatch Mountain valley town of Liberty recorded 2.1 inches of rain over a 48-hour period ending Sunday night. Brigham City came in with nearly 1.9 inches, while South Ogden measured nearly 1.7 inches of rain and Bountiful and Ogden 1.5 inches each during the period.
