Haze expected to linger over northern Utah for much of week
First Published Aug 20 2012 06:44 am • Last Updated Aug 20 2012 03:04 pm

Anyone tired of looking at the smoggy skies over northern Utah will have to continue to wait for relief.

The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City said the winds in the northern half of the state will be blowing in from the northwest. That’s expected to blow smoke from some of the nation’s largest wildfires burning in Idaho, Nevada and Washington right into northern Utah over the next few days.

The weather service said no relief is expected until at least Thursday, which is the next chance of heavy rainfall.

In the meantime, mostly sunny skies were on tap in the north for Monday. Southern Utahns could expect scattered showers and thunderstorms after noon. Some of those storms could trigger flash flooding.

A flash flood watch goes into affect at noon Monday for much of southern Utah including Zion National Park, Capitol Reef National Park, Glen Canyon Recreation area and the San Rafael Swell.

The air quality was expected to be "yellow" or moderate.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature for Monday and Tuesday was pegged at 90 and 93, respectively; Logan, 88 and 91; Provo 93 and 94; Wendover 92 and 91; Duchesne 83 and 84; Cedar City 84 and 82; St. George 100 and 97; and Moab 94 and 95 degrees.
