More rain, thunderstorms expected across Utah on Sunday
First Published Jul 07 2013 10:08 am • Last Updated Jul 07 2013 06:59 pm

More rain and thunderstorms were on tap Sunday for parts of Utah.

The Sunday thunderstorms caused enough rock slides around Timpanogos Cave that the National Park Service cancelled all hiking and tours on Monday while crews clean up the paths.

There was also a mud slide that temporarily shut down State Road 92 at mile post 10, according to the Utah Department of Transportation. No one was injured in the slide, which was cleared as of 6:50 p.m. Sunday.

The western two-thirds of the state were the most likely to experience the latest batch of storms, which will bring gusty winds, hail and heavy rain, according to the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City.

There is a 40 percent chance of storms during the day Sunday in Salt Lake City. Overnight that chance drops to 20 percent, forecasters say. Come Monday, there is a 30 percent likelihood of daytime thunderstorms.

Starting Monday things will start to dry out again. And though storms will still be possible, their intensity and coverage will decrease, the weather service said.

Temperatures will also begin to rise again this week with triple-digit heat again possible across northern Utah by Wednesday or Thursday. Temperatures could reach close to 110 by midweek in and around St. George.

And as temperatures warm, critical fire weather is expected again Thursday as winds increase and humidity drops.
