Utah forecast: A recipe for hot, humid and stormy

First Published Sep 04 2013 07:15 am • Last Updated Sep 04 2013 08:40 am

Utah’s mid-week weather recipe: Measures of hot and humid, stirred by thunderstorms and rainfall. Repeat.

Under partly cloudy skies, high temperatures Thursday along the Wasatch Front were expected to range into the low- to mid-90s with afternoon and evening storms — a mirror image of Wednesday’s forecast.

Isolated showers and thunderstorms also were expected to bring steamy weather to southern Utah, where high temperatures were to be in the upper-90s to low 100s both days.

If that’s what you like, then as the late Julia Child might say, while clad in a sensible tiered and ruffled swim dress and wielding a hand-held barometer, "Bon Appétit!"

If you can stand the heat and humidity, going outdoors will at least bring relatively clear breathing. The Utah Division of Air Quality has given its "green," or healthy air quality grades to monitoring stations statewide through the end of this work week.

However, there is this catch: the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website rates grass, chenopods, ragweed and plantain as "very high" on its pollen index, with mold earning a "high."

Salt Lake City’s high temperature Thursday is set to hit 95 degrees, up from Wednesday’s forecast for 93; Ogden looked for 91 and 89; Provo 92s; Logan 90s; Wendover 91 and 89; Duchesne 84s; Cedar City 86 and 85; St. George 101 and 100; and Moab 97 and 96 degrees.
