While some like it hot, it seems Mother Nature still prefers it snowy and cold.
Although the mercury along the Wasatch Front may climb into the 40s Saturday afternoon, Utahns aren't likely to find it much of a reprieve as snow will quickly follow Saturday night and continue into Sunday morning. And once the clouds clear later Sunday, the all-too-familiar cold is expected to return, plunging lows back into the teens and even the single-digits. Highs will be in the 20s.Perhaps even more chilling news, says the U.S. Weather Service, is that Saturday marks the 59th consecutive day an inch or more of snow has been on the ground at Salt Lake International Airport - the fifth longest streak on record. The record for snow on the ground is 86 days.
Conditions are more pleasant in Utah's Dixie, where any weekend precipitation will probably be in the form of rain. Southern Utah lows will be in the 20s, with highs in the upper-40s and low-50s.
