Isolated thunderstorms are possible in Utah on Saturday


SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Have a nice weekend folks! We have a drier pattern settling in the state with high pressure continuing to take control, but we cannot rule out the possibility of isolated thunderstorms.

You can expect partly cloudy skies and temperatures that climb quite close to our seasonal average of 88 in Salt Lake City.

Daytime peaks along the Wasatch Front will be in the mid to upper 80s, with 90s near Moab, Blanding and Lake Powell.

Saint-Georges will be the hot spot with temperatures that will return to triple digits. Drier air will push through the state, but persistent humidity could allow isolated to locally scattered showers and thunderstorms to develop over the higher terrain during the afternoon hours.

This leads to the risk of flash floods in some popular neighborhoods. Flash floods are possible near the San Rafael Swell, Bryce Canyon National Park, Capitol Reef National Park and in the Grand Staircase area, so if you are planning to recreate in the area it is important to stay aware of the weather.

This inflow in dry conditions is the complement of a flow from the north-west, where a strong area of ​​high pressure has developed. The impacts of this high pressure will affect us on Sunday as the entire region dries out even more and temperatures will continue to warm as this mass of high pressure air nears Utah.

As next week approaches, high pressure is building up and above average temperatures are on the way!

With the risk of thunderstorms in the forecast, you can stay informed with the accurate weather team both live and online at abc4.com/weather. We are There4You! Have a fantastic weekend.
