Water and River Temperatures

Posted May 23rd - 2:34pm

I am interested in finding information on Utah's Major Waterways and current temperatures

Could you provide me a link or way to find the current water temperatures of the major lakes in Utah. As the Memorial weekend is the big summertime kickoff to summer camping and boating in the State.

It would be nice to compare the current water temperatures and lake levels to seasonal norms given this extra hot and dry spring.

Cleaner Air

Posted May 23rd - 12:41pm

I live in Centerville and am retiring soon. I need to move but stay as close to SLC as possible. How far west (Granstville) or south (Spanishfork), for example, would I need to relocate to get in a cleaner air situation. Thanks John


Cough cough...that's what you want to avoid. We have some nasty air in Salt Lake. Some of the worst in the US!! Combine a major population, a big valley with mountains, western high pressure and too many cars on the road and poof, bad air. We also have a ton of flowering trees and plants for pollen.

Do the Dew

Posted May 23rd - 12:14pm


On our farm we raise some alfalfa hay along with some other crops. We like to bale the hay when it is dry but catch it when it has some dew on it but it can have too much dew at times. So my question is what things do I need to watch for to help determine if there is going to be any dew at night or if there will be a lot.

I do know that clear, calm nights seem to bring on more dew and that when there are clouds and wind there is little dew. Why would this be and does temperature have anything to do with it. Oh, and what does dew point mean?

Hi: Do you happen to know what the weather is like in Cancun around Thanksgiving time? We have a trip planned there this year!

Lawn Watering

Posted May 23rd - 11:44am

KSL's web site used to have a link to a lawn watering guide that listed how much water we need to put down and how often. It also showed how we were doing conserving water this year compared to normal use, etc. I don't see these links on the weather web page, are they gone or am I just missing the link? If it has been deleted, I would greatly appreciate having it on there again. A great and valuable tool. Thanks, Vaughn G.


I am looking for a link to project how much water for my lawn is needed each week. Where will I find it? B.

The Sky at Night

Posted May 23rd - 11:22am


We live in Taylorsville and often see a bright star in the lower part of the western sky. Is this a star or perhaps a planet? Our neighbors have had the same question and none of us know the answer. We would appreciate any information you can provide us.

Sincerely, Stuart N.

Why am I sneezing?

Any idea what pollen is up so high this past weekend and today?

My brother, daughter and I are all suffering.

The Jet Stream

Posted May 9th - 2:29pm

I was taught in flight school that the Jet Stream is a separation between the troposphere and the tropopause. Or rather, it occurs at that boundary and is caused by the movement of the air in the troposphere as compared to the relatively static air of the tropopause.

During High Pressure when the tropopause is closer to the earth then of course the jetstream is closer to the earth.

I'm having a little trouble understanding how that works because as explained, if it is part of the boundary then it seems like it would have to cover the entire planet.

Red Sky at Night

Posted May 5th - 6:16pm

Red skys in the morning, sailors take warning. Red skys at night, sailors' delight. What is the meteorological basis for this saying?
