While the entire state of Utah seems to be stuck on hot, it'll be worse for some southern areas.
Portions of lower Washington County and the Lake Powell area will see moderate heat risk levels Thursday, but the brunt of the heat will move in over the weekend — with lower elevations across the state facing moderate risk by Friday.
Forecast highs in the Salt Lake City area are in the mid- to upper-90s through Monday, parts of southern Utah will move into high or very high risk levels. Southern Utah will be stuck in triple-digit heat through Monday, with St. George seeing the worst of it. The city’s forecast high on Sunday is 110.
The National Weather Service is suggesting people limit outdoor activities in these areas.
For those in Salt Lake County looking for a respite from the heat, two cooling centers will be available Thursday through Tuesday from noon to 7 p.m. — at the Mountain America Expo Center 9575 South State Street in Sandy and Salt Palace Convention Center at 100 S. West Temple in Salt Lake City.
Social distancing protocols will be enforced inside the facilities and visitors will be required to wear a face covering.
There is no precipitation in the forecast for Utah.
