It's déjà vu all over again.

The Utah forecast again predicts the thermometer will climb to the 90s along the Wasatch Front on Saturday and Sunday, as it has the previous weekends in July.

And, once again, a scorcher is expected in southwest Utah, including St. George and Zion National Park, with a high of about 101 on Saturday and 103 on Sunday predicted by the National Weather Service.

From Provo to Salt Lake City to Ogden, Saturday's high will be in the lower to mid 90s and Sunday's high will be in the upper 90s, the weather service says. Sunday's forecast includes a 20 percent to 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon.

Park City will be only slightly cooler, with the high hitting about 90 on Saturday and the lower 90s on Sunday.

Southern Utah also could see some precipitation, with isolated thunderstorms Saturday afternoon in St. George and a slight chance of showers continuing into the evening and throughout Sunday.
