The Wasatch Front looked for highs of 75-80 Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with the temperatures on Monday rising into the mid-80s. Throughout the first half of holiday weekend, afternoon thunderstorms and rain showers were on the horizon.
Southern Utahns, meanwhile, seem to have skipped the remainder of spring entirely and plunged into summer. High temperatures Friday and Saturday were to range into low-80s, again with isolated showers and thunderstorms in the later hours. Sunday's highs were forecast to climb near 90 degrees and then the mid- to upper-90s on Monday.
The Utah Division of Air Quality predicted "green," or healthy breathing conditions this weekend, though wildfires in northern Arizona may waft smoke into southwestern Utah, deteriorating air quality there.
The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website's pollen index was "high" for grass and cedar and "moderate" for oak and mold.
