Utah forecast: Warm and wet ahead of the weekend

First Published Aug 21 2014 07:44 am • Last Updated Aug 21 2014 08:03 am

Throughout the state, Thursday was ushered in by thunderstorms and rain — heavy in places — as a wet weather pattern expected to continue Friday.

The National Weather Service did not issue any flood watches and warnings, though forecasters still cautioned that in the region’s slot canyons, dry washes and on slopes recently denuded by fires the potential for flash floods remained worrisome.

The Wasatch Front’s weather menu called for scattered showers and thunderstorms interspersed with sunny, breezy breaks as the weekend approached. High temperatures were predicted to reach the mid-80s both Thursday and Friday.

Southern Utahns looked for Ma Nature to plop the same meteorological platter on their weather tables: showers, thunder and lightning making an appearance in the afternoons and evenings with daytime high temperatures around 90 degrees.

The Utah Division of Air Quality rated the entire state in the "green," or healthy category heading as the weekend beckoned.

The Intermountain Allergy & Asthma website listed chenopods as "very high," and mold "high" and ragweed at "moderate" on the pollen index as of Thursday.
