Utah forecast: Thunder, lightning, rain and heat

First Published Aug 21 2013 08:07 am • Last Updated Aug 22 2013 07:13 am

Thunder. Lightning. Rain. High temperatures in the 90s to 100s. Yes, it must be mid-August in Utah.

The National Weather Service predicted low- to mid-90s along the Wasatch Front on Thursday, echoing Wednesday’s forecast. Forecasts for both days also called for afternoon and evening storms, driven by winds of 10-20 mph.

The same predictions applied to the state’s southern reaches, except along with thunderstorms and rain showers came temperatures expected to top 100 degrees in the St. George area.

The Utah Division of Air Quality rated breathability statewide in the "Green," or healthy category.

The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website, however, warned that chenopods were at "very high" levels on its pollen index, while mold was "high" and ragweed "moderate."

Salt Lake City’s Thursday high temperature was predicted to reach 96, up 2 degrees from Wednesday’s forecast; Ogden looked for 93 and 90 degrees, respectively; Provo 93 and 94; Logan 92 and 89; Wendover 94 and 92; Duchesne 85s; Cedar City 89 and 90; St. George 102 and 103; and Moab 95s.
