Prolonged Heat Wave Starts Today!
Wednesday's Pinpoint Forecast: An intense, relentless heat wave starts today! Under sunny skies, highs will reach the upper 80s to mid 90s up north, and southern Utah will be in the 90s to around 100 for Dixie. Thursday, the heat will intensify, with the Wasatch Front approaching 100, and southern Utah topping out between 95-110. Through the weekend into next week, highs will be up around 95-102 for northern Utah, and as high as 112 for Dixie. One saving grace could be monsoon moisture and thunderstorms, especially over the southern mountains. Fire danger will remain very high through this period.
