Utah forecast: Cold and wet in the north, windy and warm in the south

Apr 27 9:34am Weather - The Salt Lake Tribune
Cold, wet and windy weather will close out both this work week and the month of April in northern Utah. Rain showers will cycle through the Wasatch Front before storm clouds begin to break up Saturday morning, ushering in an afternoon of mid-50s temperatures. That will be considerably warmer than Friday, when morning snow could dust the valleys ahead of daytime temperatures in the mid- to upper-40s. Perspective is all.

BYU football: Sitake effect? Cougs could have two taken in NFL draft

Apr 26 6:34pm BYU - The Salt Lake Tribune
Provo • Of all the many differences between new BYU football coach Kalani Sitake and former coach Bronco Mendenhall, Sitake’s emphasis on preparing players for the next level is one of the most glaring. The Sitake Effect, as some are calling it, could play out this weekend as the NFL draft begins Thursday in Philadelphia and runs through Saturday. BYU has not had more than one player taken in the same NFL draft since 2009, when receiver Austin Collie went to the Indianapolis Colts in the fourth ...

Until then, as Langston Hughes drolly observed, “It raineth on the Just and the Unjust Alike, but the Unjust stealeth the Just’s umbrella.” And so, you soggy, bareheaded Utahns caught in the storm, the late “jazz poet” advises a sigh and surrender: “ Let the rain kiss you.
