Utah forecast: Sunny, warm and dry statewide
‘Red Flag’» Wildfire danger alert out for Castle Country.
First Published May 30 2012 07:12 am • Last Updated May 30 2012 08:28 am

Under mostly clear and sunny skies, northern Utah’s forecast for Thursday called for high temperatures in the mid- to upper-70s, while southern Utahns looked for highs at or above 90 degrees.

Continued dry conditions prompted the National Weather Service to once more issue a "Red Flag" wildfire danger warning, this time for central Utah’s Castle Country, north and south of Interstate 70 and between Price and Green River. Forecasters warned of winds of 20 mph, with gusts of 30 mph, amid parched high desert rangelands and forests.
