10-day forecast looks good for August 19

I've been wondering what the weather will be like for the Great Salt Lake Half Marathon. The temperature (at my house) at 6:30 this morning was 59 (F). The sun wasn't up but was close to peaking over the mountain. The 10-day forecast for Clearfield, Utah on weather.com is for sunshine and a high of 90 (F) and a low of 67 (F). Sunrise will be at 6:42 am. The race starts at 6:30, so the temperature during the race will be about 67-68 (F) at the start and probably in the mid to high 70s at the finish. An 8 mph breeze is predicted, and it will be a side wind (all winds in the Salt Lake valley are north or south winds, and the race will be going due west). Utah weather changes a lot, so a prediction this early of a sunny day may not mean much. If a storm front comes in, the temperature will change, too. But, the predicted sunrise should be accurate :)
