Utah forecast: Warm, wet days and cool autumn nights

First Published Oct 01 2013 07:04 am • Last Updated Oct 01 2013 10:15 am

Warm and wet is the forecast for Utah’s daytime weather at the mid-week, while overnight lows will drop to more autumn-like temperatures.

The National Weather Service predicted highs in the 70s for the Wasatch Front on Wednesday, with afternoon rain showers — turning to snow near the mountain peaks. That is down from near-80 degree highs expected Tuesday, with overnight lows both days in the 40s and low-50s.

Southern Utahns looked for highs in the mid- to-upper 80s both days and overnight lows in the 50-60 degree range.

The Utah Division of Air Quality ran the "Green," or healthy breathing banner, up its atmospheric flag poles for the mid-week period, but the Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website had some cautionary data for allergy sufferers: sagebrush was "very high," and ragweed "high" on its pollen index.

Specific high and low temperature city forecasts usually provided from the NWS were not immediately available Tuesday morning and calls to the Salt Lake City office went unanswered — apparently due tothe federal government shutdown and furloughs precipitated by the ongoing congressional debate over spending.

The NWS issued this statement Tuesday morning:

"Due to the Federal government shutdown, NOAA.gov and most associated web sites are unavailable. Only web sites necessary to protect lives and property will be maintained."

However, the WeatherBug.com website predicted Salt Lake City’s high temperature for Wednesday would hit 70, down from Tuesday’s 77-degree forecast; Ogden looked for 70 and 75 degrees, respectively; Provo 74 and 78; Logan 68 and 71; Wendover 69 and 77; Duchesne 65 and 68; St. George 81 and 83; and Moab 77 and 79 degrees.
