Cooler temperatures and a new cycle of thunderstorms and rain showers were forecast for Utah from north to south through Wednesday.
The National Weather Service predicted high temperatures on Wednesday along the Wasatch Front would range into the low-90s, down several degrees from last week's record-setting heat. That forecast mirrored northern Utah's Tuesday predictions.
Southern Utahns, too, looked for precipitation and slightly cooler temperatures — though mid- to high-90s expected both days may not seem like much relief from triple-digits readings of last week.
The Utah Division of Air Quality awarded its "green," or healthy breathing grades to the entire state going into the mid-week, while the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma rated chenopds and mold at "high" and sagebrush and ragweed at "moderate" on its pollen index.
