SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Our Tuesday will be quite busy as we expect to see severe weather in Utah.
A storm system is expected to continue moving across the Grand Bassin, bringing heavy rain and strong winds. This will be an event in the second half of the day as we get our sun warming which gives us the extra boost we need to trigger storms.
This will allow storms to have the umph they need to start and will really cause problems for some of us in Utah. Storms will continue to affect us for the next few hours as we head into night.
Due to all the rains a flash flood watch has been issued especially for areas prone to flooding and burn scars. To add to all the risks, we can expect a red flag warning thanks to the winds in front of the system coupled with our very dry fuels after 2 weeks without rain.
These storms will continue overnight, resulting in a soggy and humid morning ride, especially in Utah County. Make sure you give yourself extra time if you are late.
Temperatures before the rain and the cold front will be in the 90s and 100s thanks to the push of air from the south. The troughs of the night will be in the 60s and 70s after the cold front, thus allowing the long-awaited cooldown.
In short, stormy weather is forecast for the second half of the day with some of these storms being on the strong to severe side.
