Back too soon, monsoon? Regardless, thunderstorms and rain showers were predicted to settle back in over portions of Utah as the new work week got underway.
Monday's forecast began with sunny weather and highs in the mid-90s, but by evening the cloud cover was to return, along with precipitation. Chances for thunderstorms increased in Tuesday's forecast, and accompanying rain showers were to push temperatures back into the low-80s.
A similar pattern of sunshine giving way to cloudy skies, along with evening thunder, lightning and rain, was on tap for southern Utah. Highs Monday were forecast to flirt with triple digits, but dip into the upper-80s come Tuesday.
