Most Utahns can look forward to a beautiful autumn weekend, the kind perfect for taking in the changing colors of the mountains and high deserts.

But such opportunities won't last for long. Colder weather is creeping in with overnight temperatures near or below freezing along the Wasatch Front.

The National Weather Service, in a foretaste of what is to come as fall nears winter, put a stretch of southeastern Utah from Green River through Moab to the Colorado border under a Freeze Watch. The advisory, which was to kick in late Friday night and lasts through Saturday morning, recommends turning off outdoor water service and disconnecting coolers ahead of low temperatures expected to be in the upper-20s.

The Salt Lake and Tooele valleys, meanwhile, expect overnight temperatures this weekend to stay near 40 degrees — though to the north, the Cache Valley was to dip below freezing — with daytime highs in the low-60s under mostly clear and sunny skies.

Southern Utahns looked for a weekend of clear, sunny skies with highs in the low- to mid-70s and overnight lows around 40 degrees, though Cedar City and Moab both expected lows in the upper-20s.

Salt Lake City's highs were forecast to hit 62 on Saturday, up from Friday's forecast for 57 degrees; Ogden looked for 57 and 55, respectively; Provo 60 and 57; Logan 58 and 54; Wendover 61 and 56; Duchesne 57 and 50; Cedar City 64 and 60; St. George 76 and 75; and Moab 62 and 60 degrees.
