Will Utah see better air quality this week?
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – As our work week began, not much has changed in terms of smoke across much of Utah. It will always be a trend that continues to drag on and create poor air quality.
Southern Utah will be a bit better off as there is a slight shift in the winds due to a weather system moving southwest, bringing some relief.
For those of us in central and northern Utah, we stay downwesterly which pushes the smoke plumes from the wildfires from California as they continue to burn at an incredible rate. .
A cold front that has halted over northern Utah is bringing cooler temperatures, but no relief from the smoke.
Temperatures for the northern regions will hover around the 80s and 90s, while those of us in the south will see temperatures still hanging in the 90s and 100s.
Overnight, smoke will continue to seep into the northern half of the state with all that westerly flow still in place. So a smoky but balmy night is expected with lows in the 60s and 70s for the most part.
In short, the smoke persists for northern Utah while southern Utah benefits a bit from the poor air quality.
