Utah forecast: Hot with occasional thunderstorms, some rain
Flash Flood Watch » Southeastern corner on alert for flooding, mudslides.
First Published Aug 07 2013 07:17 am • Last Updated Aug 07 2013 09:28 am

Hot temperatures and an increasing chance for mountain thunderstorms and rain showers were on the mid-week climatological menu for Utah.

While those storms were not expected to bring much precipitation to most of the Beehive State, the southeastern corner of Utah— an area roughly stretching from Moab south through Blanding and Bluff and into Colorado — was under a Flash Flood Watch through Wednesday evening.

Authorities warned that heavy rains in that region could trigger mudslides on recently burned mountain slopes and sudden flooding in slot canyons.

The Wasatch Front looked for high temperatures in the mid-90s on Thursday, an encore of Wednesday’s forecast, along with a 20 percent chance of rain and winds in the 10 to 20 mph range.

Southern Utahns looked for highs in the upper-90s both days, a 20 percent chance of precipitation and winds of 10 to 20 mph.

The Utah Division of Air Quality was flying its "Green," or healthy air banners statewide, while the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website rated chenopod pollen at "very high" and mold as "moderate" on its mid-week index.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature for Thursday was to hit 94 degrees, the same as forecast for Wednesday; Ogden looked for 90 and 91 degrees, respectively; Provo 92 and 91; Logan 90 and 92; Wendover 93s; Duchesne 82s; Cedar City 85 and 84; St. George 97s; and Moab 88 and 86 degrees.
