Utah forecast: Thunderstorms, but don’t expect much heat relief
Rain?» No more than 20-30 percent chance as temps stay high.
First Published Aug 29 2012 06:38 am • Last Updated Aug 29 2012 08:20 am

Isolated thunderstorms and rain showers could bring a brief moment or two of respite from Utah’s heat, but don’t grab the slickers yet — and don’t shelve that sun block lotion.

The National Weather Service, after all, puts the chance of precipitation at 20-30 percent when those storm clouds move into the region during late-week afternoons and evenings. A sure bet, however, is that northern Utah’s high temperatures Thursday will range into the 90s again, perhaps a few degrees cooler than Wednesday’s readings -- but still hot.

Chances of rain from thunderstorms in southern Utah were 20 percent while the mercury was expected to climb once more toward triple digits.

At least the state’s air quality is something to celebrate. The Utah Division of Environmental Quality was flying "Green," or health air quality banners for all Utah monitoring stations heading toward the weekend.

Salt Lake City’s forecast high Wednesday was 97, with 91 degrees predicted for Thursday; Ogdenites looked for 93 and 90 degrees, respectively; Provo 97 and 92; Logan 92 and 90; Wendover 94 and 90; Duchesne 84s; Cedar City 90 and 87; St. George 101 and 98; and Moab 97 and 95 degrees.
