First Published Sep 05 2012 06:55 am • Last Updated Sep 05 2012 11:38 am

Utah’s forecast for Thursday: called for continued warm temperatures north to south, along with periodic, isolated thunderstorms and rain showers.

Under partly cloudy skies, the Wasatch Front generally looked for the mercury to climb into the high-80s to low-90s Thursday, up a couple degrees from Wednesday’s forecast. To the south, the forecast was for much of the same, except high temperatures were to range into the mid- and upper-90s.

On Monday, an isolated but heavy rainstorm triggered a mudslide that closed fown State Road 31 through Huntington Canyon. The Utah Department of Transportation said a nine mile stretch of the road remained closed Wednesday and it could be early next week before the route is reopened.

The intermittent stormy weather was mixing and freshening the atmosphere pretty well; that prompted the Utah Division of Air Quality to hoist its "Green," or healthy air quality flags statewide.

Salt Lake City looked for a high of 87 Thursday, down from Wednesday’s forecast of 92 degrees; Ogden expected readings of 85 and 88, respectively; Provo 90 and 91; Logan 87 and 88; Wendover 86 and 90; Duchesne 79 and 82; Cedar City 83 and 86; St. George 96 and 97; and Moab 91 and 92 degrees.
