SHARE RAIN, A BIT OF SNOW WILL BLOW INTO N. UTAH THIS WEEKEND

A high-pressure system, which has brought warm, pleasant weather to northern Utah in recent weeks, will begin to weaken Thursday.

Cooler, wet weather is on tap for the weekend. And - start making plans, skiers - the snow level will drop to between 6,000 and 7,000 feet by Sunday. That will probably mean light snow in the tops of Parleys and Logan canyons.Friday will be windy and cooler. "We ought to see quite a bit of shower activity in the north" during the weekend, said William J. Alder, meteorologist in charge of the Salt Lake office of the National Weather Service.

In the north, temperatures will be in the mid-70s Wednesday, in the upper 70s and near 80 Thursday and in the mid-70s Friday, possibly dropping to the 50s during the weekend.

The forecast for the St. George area calls for temperatures in the low to mid-90s during the next two days and probably in the 70s by the weekend.

On Monday the mercury rose to 73 degrees and dropped to 46 degrees early Tuesday at the Salt Lake International Airport. That compares with 76 and 49 degrees on the same dates last year, Alder said.
