Father’s Day forecast for Utah

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Happy Father’s Day! Many of us have lost our heat warning thanks to a dry cold front, but some of us in southern Utah still have an excessive heat warning until Sunday evening due to the above-average heat and lack of relaxation overnight.

The dry cold front has also worked wonders for most of Beehive State, as we see a dramatic increase in air quality, with the exception of those near the forest fires.

One good thing we have on Father’s Day is that there is even less chance of thunderstorms, so dry lightning is less common to start fires.

We should take extra precautions, however, as the risk of fire remains high due to the very dry lower plains and gusty winds. This is, in addition to what is expected, another hot day in this long heat wave from the high pressure system that sits above us.

Northern Utah, Eastern Nevada, and Southern Idaho will be in the low 90s and even back in the triple digits with lots of sunshine. In southwest Wyoming, heights will be seen with plenty of sunshine from the mid to late 1980s.

Central and southern Utah expect another day of highs in the mid-90s and upper 100s. Cloud cover won’t be too much of a problem, but due to the forest fires in this area, there will still be a smoky and hazy sky.

Red flag warnings last until at least 9 p.m. Sunday, and many would like to be extended into the work week when the wind really picks up.
