Northern Utahns looked for warm and pleasant weather as the work week got under way, but in the state’s southern reaches it will be just plain hot — and dangerously dry.
While the Wasatch Front expected high temperatures Tuesday in the low-80s, a few degrees cooler than Monday’s forecast, the mercury will climb into the mid- to upper-90s in parched and windy Utah’s Dixie.
Humidity will dip to a bone-dry 5 percent or less in southwestern Utah. Combined with winds of 30-40 mph, that brought a "Red Flag" wildfire danger warning through 10 p.m. Monday — conditions likely to persist into the midweek period.
The Utah Division of Air Quality predicted "yellow," or compromised breathing conditions statewide the next couple days.
The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website’s pollen index was "very high" for grass, "high" for mold and "moderate" for maple and plantain.
