The National Weather Service is planning a sunny weekend.

(Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune) Waves of birds fly west under a golden sunset over Great Salt Lake on Thursday, October 14, 2021.

Warmer temperatures and clear skies are expected in Utah after a week of frost and snow warnings, according to the National Weather Service.

Although temperatures will remain below average for this time of year, Saturday’s high is forecast at around 62 degrees with clear skies and light winds in the afternoon. A low of 40 degrees is expected on Saturday evening, the weather service reported.

Sunday will bring a high near 69, which matches the mid-60s average temperatures for mid-October. However, it will be colder next week.

The forecast for Salt Lake City calls for a high of 59, 55, 61 and 63 degrees on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, respectively. The lows of the night should be in the 30s and 40s.

There is a 50% chance of showers on Monday, but the weather service does not predict any precipitation for the rest of the week.

Temperatures in southwest Utah will hit 70 degrees over the weekend with a high of 78 expected on Saturday and 79 on Sunday. The middle of the week should be quite temperate with highs in the mid-70s Monday through Thursday and lows in the 40s.

Temperatures are starting to line up with mid-October averages in St. George, where average highs are in the 1970s and lows in the 1960s.
