Monday's Pinpoint Forecast: Waking up to isolated storms this morning over the northern Wasatch Front, the western Uintas, around Price, and also down near Moab. More scattered thunderstorms will develop this afternoon, mainly over the mountains and eastern Utah. Highs will be in the 80s and 90s. The wind will pick up this afternoon, gusting higher than 25mph over the west deserts. Sooo, the fire danger will remain high. Skies will be a little smoky across northern Utah, especially coming from the Patch Springs fire west of Tooele. Tonight, isolated storms early, then clearing out and there should be good visibility for the Perseid Meteor Shower that peaks the next few nights. For the rest of the week, storm activity will diminish some, but it will remain hot, breezy, and dry. Highs will climb to 5-10 degrees above average, nearing 100 for the Wasatch Front my Thursday. This weekend, a surge of monsoon moisture will result in more storms, cloud cover, and cooler temps.
