A warm and breezy midweek forecast applied to the entire state of Utah as spring firmly took the region in its grip.

The National Weather Service predicted high temperatures Thursday along the Wasatch Front in the low-70s, down just a couple degrees from Wednesday's forecast. With winds in the 10-20 mph range, variable cloudiness also was on the region's weather menu.

Southern Utahns expected to bask in temperatures soaring into the upper-80s come Thursday, a mirror of Wednesday's forecast. Winds of 10-20 mph were to provide modest relief from the heat, however.

The Utah Division of Air Quality graded breathability statewide in the "green," or healthy zone.

The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website listed cottonwood pollen levels as "high," while cedar and oak came in at "moderate" levels.
