For most of what you have planned, the weather will be simply gorgeous during the next four or five days in Utah.

High pressure and warm temperatures will prevail through at least Monday, said William J. Alder, meteorologist in charge of the Salt Lake office of the National Weather Service.Temperatures will be near 70 Thursday, in the mid-70s Friday, near 80 Saturday and in the low 80s Sunday along the Wasatch Front. It should be in the 90s and near 100 in St. George during the weekend, Alder said.

While it may seem very warm for mid-April, the temperatures are not abnormal, considering some past years.

Some high temperatures around the state Wednesday: Brigham City, 66; Logan, Salt Lake International Airport and Wendover, 64; Ogden and Tooele, 65; Richfield, 62; Monticello, 57; Kanab, 70; St. George, 79; and Cedar City, 63.

Alder said the situation still "looks pretty good for water needs during the summer, although it is nothing to brag about."

"There will probably be enough to go around. The only problem I see is for farmers who rely on streamflow for irrigation. They may run out of water by mid-summer or the tail end of summer. We're starting to lose a lot of snowpack early because of warm temperatures. We have only about normal snowpack in the mountains."
