Utah forecast: Hot, a little wet in north; just plain hot in the south
August heat » Mid-90s along Wasatch Front, near 100 in Utah’s Dixie.
First Published Aug 12 2013 07:33 am • Last Updated Aug 12 2013 09:10 am

Northern Utah’s temperatures will remain locked in the mid-90s Tuesday, but isolated thunderstorms and rain showers could bring some relief from the heat.

The National Weather Service estimated the chance of precipitation along the Wasatch Front Tuesday at 20 percent, a mirror of Monday’s forecast for the region.

Southern Utahns, meanwhile, looked for the mercury to climb toward triple digits but without the hope for precipitation under mostly clear skies.

Continued dry conditions brought a Red Flag Warning for heightened wildfire danger for the Wasatch and central Utah mountains. The advisory, issued Monday morning, extends through 9 p.m. Monday.

The Utah Division of Air Quality assigned "Green," or healthy breathing grades statewide, while the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website warned allergy sufferers that chenopods and mold remained elevated on its pollen index — "high" and "moderate," respectively.

Salt Lake City looked for a high of 96 on Tuesday, up a degree from Monday’s forecast; Ogden expected 92-degree readings both days; Provo 94 and 92, respectively; Logan 93 and 92; Wendover 94 and 93; Duchesne 84 and 81; Cedar City 88 and 87; St. George 101 and 100; and Moab 90 and 89 degrees.
