Hot and dry in the north, hotter and wetter in the south

First Published Jul 07 2014 07:23 am • Last Updated Jul 07 2014 07:24 am

Northern Utahns looked for hot, dry weather to continue through Tuesday, while evening thundershowers were forecast to offer some modest relief to sizzling southern Utah.

The Wasatch Front’s daytime highs on Tuesday were to flirt with triple digits, echoing Monday’s weather. Increasingly cloudy skies were predicted, but no rainfall was expected.

However, Utah’s Dixie began Monday with isolated thunderstorms and rain showers before the forecast called for highs topping 101 degrees. That monsoonal pattern was to resume on Tuesday as the mercury topped 102.

The National Weather Service warned that showers and thunderstorms posed a risk of flash flooding in the slot canyons, burn scars and usually dry washes of both central and southern Utah.

The Utah Division of Air Quality predicted "yellow," or compromised air quality statewide, with the exception of Cache, Carbon, Duchesne and Washington counties, which were "green," or healthy.

The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website listed only mold at "high" on its pollen index, while other allergens were graded as "low" on Monday.
