A Walt Whitman kind of forecast for the end of Utah's week would welcome "the splendid silent sun with all his beams full-dazzling."
Leaves of Grass, indeed. The Wasatch Front, its trees full with foliage and bursting with wildflowers in blossom, looked for clear, sunny skies and high temperatures in the upper-60s on Friday. That came in the wake of Thursday's forecast for early, scattered thunderstorms and temperatures near 70 degrees.
Southern Utah, meanwhile, previewed summer weather with Friday's highs expected to flirt with 90 degrees under mostly clear skies, a mirror image of Thursday's forecast.
