Monday was expected to be a pretty nice day across the state, though temperatures were expected to reach the mid-90s.
However, the entire state Monday remained under a hazardous weather outlook as drier air moves into northwest Utah.
Northern Utahns could expect to see less thunderstorm activity, while eastern and southern residents could expected to see scattered showers and thunderstorms, the National Weather Service predicted. Those storms had the possibility of producing brief, heavy rainfall and isolated flash flooding.
For the rest of the week, the weather service predicted "very warm temperatures" statewide through the weekend and the possibility of mountain thunderstorms through Thursday.
The state’s air quality was expected to be green, but at the moderate level.
Salt Lake City’s high temperature Monday was pegged at 96, while expectations for Tuesday was also 96; Ogden looked for highs of 95 and 97, respectively; Provo 96 and 97; Logan 93 and 94; Wendover 95 and 98; Duchesne 87 and 92; Cedar City 85 and 88; St. George 98 and 103; and Moab 94 and 97 degrees.
