A slight warming trend, with occasional relief from scattered thunderstorms and light rain showers, was the forecast Wednesday for northern Utah.

The National Weather Service predicts temperatures along the Wasatch Front will hit the mid-90s on Wednesday, up a few degrees from Tuesday’s forecast.

Southern Utahns, meanwhile, will see the mercury retreat a couple degrees from Tuesday to Wednesday, with highs in the mid-90s compared Tuesday’s forecast for nearer to triple digit temperatures.

Southern Utahns, too, can look for thunderstorm and light rain shower activity throughout the period.

However, rainfall could prove intense in isolated locations, as evidenced by Monday showers that contributed to an 11:55 p.m. closure of a nine-mile-long stretch of State Road 31 in south-central Utah’s Huntington Canyon. The Sanpete County Sheriff’s Office confirmed both directions between mile posts 38 to 37 remained closed Tuesday morning as work continued to clear the mud.

The Utah Division of Air Quality rated the entire state "Green," or healthy at mid-week.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature Wednesday was predicted to hit 89 degrees, the same as forecast Tuesday; Ogden looked for 86 degrees both days; Provo expected 90s; Logan 88 and 87; Wendover 88 and 89; Duchesne 82 and 81; Cedar City 87 and 88; St. George 96 and 97; and Moab 91 and 93 degrees.
