SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4) – Happy Tuesday, Utah! A similar weather scenario is taking shape this afternoon along southern Utah with showers and thunderstorms in the mix.
An abundance of monsoonal moisture over the southern half of the state will continue to increase the risk of flooding into the evening.
A flood watch is in effect for south-central Utah, including much of Washington County. The thunderstorms will bring heavy rain to these areas with larger storms after about 5 p.m. and continuing into the evening.
While humidity resides over the southern portion of Utah, hot, dry weather persists in the north. It will essentially be a repeat of what we saw on Monday, with most regions warming by a degree or two.
We are expecting triple digit temperatures in many towns along the Wasatch Front with a high of 100 degrees predicted for Salt Lake City this afternoon. This same weather pattern is expected to remain over the region through Wednesday with warm temperatures in the north and a risk of thunderstorms over southern Utah.
By the end of the week, some moisture will move further north and could bring isolated storms as far north as Utah County. On Friday, thunderstorms will be possible across the state with storms moving in from the southeast. Temperatures will remain unforgiving along the Wasatch front well into the weekend with further triple digit temperatures forecast for Saturday and Sunday.
Bottom Line: Heavy rain and flash flooding remain a concern in southern Utah, while the north will continue to experience heat.
