SALT LAKE CITY — The Wasatch Front will see another day of above 100 degrees again on Monday, but there is some relief in sight.
The day after Salt Lake City set a new daily record of above 100 degrees at the airport, it will be 102 degrees today. Not only will it be hot, but the skies will also be smoky.
The @NWSSaltLakeCity says smoky skies could be with much of the state for a couple of days. It may remain in northern Utah depending on what happens with the fire upstream. Reminder most of haze filled skies are coming from fires in Oregon and California. pic.twitter.com/Awtxtxt9Yy— KSL NewsRadio (@kslnewsradio) July 11, 2021
The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for parts of the state through 9 p.m. Monday, but we do get some relief this week.
"We have some thunderstorms, won't be quite as hot tomorrow or the next three days," says KSL Meteorologist Grant Wayman. "Then it inches back up to near 100 again for the weekend."
The forecast shows a slight chance of thunderstorms and rain for Tuesday and Wednesday. The National Weather Service said isolated storms could increase the threat of flash flooding this week.
The threat for heavy rainfall continues to increase, especially across central and southern Utah Tuesday and Wednesday. This may lead to a threat of flash flooding for slot canyons and dry washes. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts. #utwxpic.twitter.com/af6cg72D8K— NWS Salt Lake City (@NWSSaltLakeCity) July 12, 2021
