Those hoping for a sunny start to the Utah work week will probably be disappointed.

The National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook for the entire state that's slated to last through Sunday.

Starting Monday, the weather service said there will be a chance for showers and thunderstorms across all of Utah and Wyoming. Those may produce heavy rainfall and flash flooding.

The areas most prone to those flash floods will be slot canyons, dry washes in southern Utah and recent wildfire burn areas.

On Tuesday, showers and thunderstorms were expected again for much of the state. The threat of flash flooding was also expected to continue.

The state's air quality was forecast to be "yellow," and officials suggested unusually sensitive people reduce prolonged outdoor exertion.

Salt Lake City looked for a high Monday of 94 degrees and 93 Tuesday; Ogden was pegged at 94 both days; Provo 94 and 92; Logan 93 and 92; Cedar City 87 and 86; St. George 106 and 104; and Moab 93 both days.
