Utah forecast: Summer rain and a break from triple-digit temps

First Published Jul 29 2014 08:45 am • Last Updated Jul 29 2014 12:47 pm

R&B singer Carl Thomas wouldn’t mind Utah’s decidedly wet weather turn. He just might croon, "So go ahead and make it rain, you bring the sunshine back again."

Indeed, summer rain is on tap for Utah from north to south at the midweek, and along with the occasionally thunderous precipitation will come cooler temperatures. Daytime highs along the Wasatch Front will be in the low-80s, while southern Utahns will see the mercury slide to the mid-90s.

However, the National Weather Service did issue a Flash Flood Watch through Tuesday night for eastern Utah from Vernal running south to Blanding. That region’s slot canyons, normally dry washes and mountain slopes bared by recent fires were all at risk for flooding.

Forecasters also briefly designated pockets of southcentral Wayne County, northeastern Garfield County and central Capitol Reef National Park under a Flash Flood Warning from 12:30 p.m. through 3:30 p.m. Tuesday as stormed rolled through the region.

The rain was expected to scrub away much of the pollution, though the Utah Division of Air Quality tentatively left Salt Lake, Davis, Utah and Weber counties in the predicted "yellow," or compromised category going into Wednesday.

The remainder of the state’s monitoring areas enjoyed "green," or health air quality grades.

The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website listed mold and chenopods at "high," while other allergens were deemed "low" as of Tuesday.
