The National Weather Service predicts that a series of thunderstorms may bring rain throughout the long weekend, with the odds of precipitation getting better on Monday. Otherwise, the Wasatch Front can expect highs in the low- to mid-90s.
The same cycle of storms are expected to develop across central and southern Utah as well, with the heaviest rain in the latter. The rains could cause flash flooding in areas prone to them, including slot canyons, slickrock areas, normally dry washes and urban areas, according to the weather service.
At least the rain keeps the air clean — the Utah Division of Air Quality rates breathability at "green," or healthy, statewide. Meanwhile, the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website rates chenopods and mold at "high" and ragweed and sagebrush at "moderate" on its pollen index.
Salt Lake City’s high temperature for Sunday is forecast at 94 degrees, then 87 on Monday; Ogden is set for 94 and 86 degrees, respectively; Provo 94 and 88; Logan 94 and 86; Wendover 92 and 88; Duchesne 83 and 79; Cedar City 79 and 83; St. George 92 and 96; and Moab 92 and 93.
