Utah forecast: Wasatch front ‘hot,’ Dixie ‘hotter’

First Published Jul 01 2014 07:30 am • Last Updated Jul 01 2014 07:32 am

How hot is Utah’s forecast approaching the midweek? Hotter than a billy goat in a pepper patch. So hot that one pig cries to another, "I’m bacon!"

Seriously, its time for broad-brimmed hats, shades, handfuls of sunscreen lotion, shorts and sandals out there, whether you call hot northern Utah or the state’s hotter southern reaches home.

The Wasatch Front looked for daytime highs in the mid-90s to near 100 on Wednesday, up 3-5 degrees from Tuesday’s forecast. Mostly clear, sunny skies were the rule.

Southern Utahns likely would shiver in such comparatively mild temperatures, though. Utah’s Dixie expected the mercury to climb to 107 degrees or more on Wednesday under clear, searing skies, matching Tuesday’s forecast.

Salt Lake, Davis, Weber, Tooele and Utah counties all looked for "yellow," or compromised air quality on the eve of Independence Day. Box Elder, Cache, Washington, Carbon and Uintah counties were graded "green," or healthy.

The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website listed mold and grass at "high" levels on its pollen index, while cattails came in at "moderate" on Tuesday.
