Utahns across much of the state can expect the warmest temperatures of the year on Sunday and Monday.

Cities along the Wasatch Front were expected to hit about 90 degrees by Monday, which at least in Salt Lake City would be a degree shy of the record for that day, according to the National Weather Service. Southern Utahns can look forward to a high of about 100 degrees that day.

With the hot temperatures, the NWS warns everyone to use extreme caution near rivers and streams as spring runoff picks up. The cold water will be running fast, and hypothermia is possible even after only a short time in the water, according to the NWS.

Air quality remains healthy statewide, but the air is still full of pollen. Intermountain Allergy & Asthma’s ranked mulberry, maple, sycamore and oak "very high" on its pollen index on Saturday. Ash and cottonwood were also high on the chart.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature Sunday is forecast for 83 and 89 on Monday; Ogden looks for 83 and 90 degrees, respectively; Provo 84 and 89; Logan 84 and 92; Wendover 86 and 92; Duchesne 80 and 83; Cedar City 81 and 84; St. George 95 and 96; and Moab 85 and 89 degrees.
