SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – We had an amazing weekend weather-wise in Utah this weekend. We broke temperature records, tracked severe thunderstorm watches, saw wind gusts over 60 mph and had flash flooding. But as we begin our working week, most of what we saw over the weekend will be remembered. We will still have heat, possible thunderstorms, winds and the potential for flash flooding, but it will be a little less than what we had.
Statewide temperatures will be a few degrees lower than what we’ve seen, though Salt Lake City is still likely to hit triple digits again, joining St. George, Moab and a few other places. Northern Utah will see a slight drop in temperatures for a few days before rising again, while in the south temperatures will hold or even rise.
The odds of thunderstorms will remain in play across the state and will continue to be scattered. We will also be on the lookout for microbursts where winds can reach 80 km/h with dangerous lightning.
These will all be mostly late afternoon and evening and mostly concentrated in the lower 2/3 of the state. This will decrease mid-week but could increase again by the weekend where we see the possibility of more humidity to come.
Flash flooding is a strong possibility, especially at Capitol Reef and San Rafeal Swell, but those chances will also decrease mid-week.
Results ? Heat and humid weather hang around for a while, only a little less
