Thunderstorms were tapering off ahead of a gradual drying trend expected to settle in over Utah beginning Tuesday.

Along the Wasatch Front morning and afternoon thunderstorms predicted for Monday were to give away to clearing skies on Tuesday. High temperatures were to soar into the upper-90s with overnight lows in the upper-60s.

Southern Utahns continued to bake. Highs on Tuesday were forecast to hit 108 degrees, up 1 degree from Monday’s forecast. Overnight lows will be in the upper-70s.

The Utah Division of Air Quality warned of "Yellow," or compromised breathing conditions in Salt Lake, Davis and Weber counties while the rest of the state’s monitoring stations reported "Green," or healthy air quality through Wednesday.

The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website reported only cattail pollen at elevated, or "moderate" levels.
