Hot day with high fire danger across Utah

First Published Jun 04 2012 06:48 am • Last Updated Jun 04 2012 07:36 am

Potentially record-setting hot temperatures and a high fire danger were expected to dominate Monday across Utah.

In anticipation of the high fire danger, the National Weather Service issued a red flag warning through Tuesday for a large portion of the state, including Salt Lake City, Ogden, St. George and Moab. Meteorologists said winds were expected to increase through Monday as a cold front approaches. That front is expected to move across northern and central Utah during the day Tuesday and arrive in southwest Utah on Tuesday evening.

But for those already tiring of the hot temperatures, the incoming front was expected to cause temperatures to start to cool starting Tuesday.

The air quality Monday wasn’t expected to be great. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality rated Monday a "yellow," or compromised air quality grade.

Salt Lake City looked for a high of 96 Monday and 80 on Tuesday; Ogden was to hit 94 and 78, respectively; Provo 94 and 82; Logan 90 and 75; Wendover 93 and 67; Duchesne 89 and 83; Cedar City 84 and 73; St. George 97 and 89; and Moab 98 and 95 degrees.
