SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Happy Thursday or Friday night, Utah! Today’s first half will look a lot like the last two days, but we have some changes that are about to be on the way!

In southern Utah we will see more scattered showers and thunderstorms with the best chance being in southwestern Utah. A flood watch will come into effect this afternoon and continue through the evening for south-central Utah, the Southern Mountains and Zion National Park.

Even outside of the watch, flash flooding will remain at the very least a possibility in all of our national parks, so if you have plans outdoors, keep that in mind!

In northern Utah we will have more sun and heat. Today’s highs will be nearly identical to what we had on Wednesday, which means we’ll be back in record territory in SLC with triple-digit heat potential.

As we move from afternoon to evening, changes will be afoot. Moisture will begin to return as the high pressure moves eastward and a system approaches from the west. In the evening through overnight, a few showers will be possible in northern Utah, but by Friday we will be looking at the potential for showers and storms across the state as cooler temperatures begin to infiltrate.

Daytime highs will shift back about 10 degrees to the north and a few degrees to the south. Although not everyone will see wet weather, there will be a better than 1 in 3 chance along the Wasatch front and closer to a 2 in 3 chance for the Wasatch back.

Saturday will bring even better potential for showers and storms in northern Utah as storms remain possible in the south. As we move from Sunday into early next week, humidity levels are expected to drop across the state as temperatures rebound to near or slightly above average temperatures.

Conclusion ? ! Southern storms and northern heat for Thursday before big changes arrive Friday and Saturday.

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Happy Friday Utah, we have come to the end of the work week! Today won’t bring much change from what we’ve seen over the past few days.

That means more showers and thunderstorms scattered across Beehive State, with the best chance being in the afternoon and evening. The best chance of storms will be along and near the I-15 corridor, especially on higher ground. Even in the valleys there is a better chance of having a 1 in 3 chance of having storms. Storms are least likely in northwestern Utah and southeastern Utah, but as we’ve seen in recent days, isolated showers and storms will still be possible as the humidity in the monsoon is abundant over Utah.

Flood watch for southwestern Utah will also continue throughout the day, extending from the Wasatch Mountains south of I-80 into Kane and Washington counties. Even outside the watch, flash flooding will be possible as well as urban flooding and small streams, as the storms will be capable of heavy rainfall. At all national parks in southern Utah, flash flooding is more of a probability than a possibility, so make sure you have multiple ways to receive alerts if you have hikes planned.

Apart from showers and thunderstorms, the sky will be partly cloudy to partly sunny with daytime highs close to or slightly below seasonal averages. This will result in low 90s along the Wasatch Front, 80s for the Wasatch Back and Cache Valley, while Southern Utah mostly sees 80s and 90s for the highs.

We will continue with this active pattern throughout the weekend as the monsoon humidity persists. While it’s not a guarantee that you’ll see storms every day, there is at least a chance, so plan ahead just in case. Humidity levels may drop slightly in northern Utah as we turn the page early next week, but storms remain in the forecast with consistent temperatures for most of the week.

Conclusion ? ! Scattered showers and storms continue over the weekend with possible flash flooding.

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Happy Thursday, Utah – we’re getting closer to the weekend! Monsoon moisture will remain over Utah Thursday and Friday, bringing additional showers and thunderstorms. The best chance for storms will be in the central half of the state, primarily from south-central Utah north to western Uintas and areas west.

Although there is a good chance of storms in these areas, not everyone will have a storm, but on the other side of the coin, some places could experience multiple cycles of wet weather. In eastern Utah, the risk of showers and storms will not be zero, but the storms will be more isolated than scattered in nature. Temperatures will also drop a bit more, with most near or slightly below seasonal averages.

As we saw on Wednesday, periods of heavy rain will be possible. On Thursday, the entire state is included in a marginal risk of excessive precipitation that could lead to flash flooding. For the I-15 corridor from St. George to Salt Lake County, then north to Bear River Range, there is a slight risk. Flash flood monitoring for southwestern Utah through Tooele County also continues throughout the day.

Find all flood watch details here.

Meanwhile, in our national parks, flash flooding will be a possibility at all parks on Thursday covering Zion, Bryce Canyon, Natural Bridges, Grand Staircase and Capitol Reef. On Friday, flash flooding will also be a probability in all parks.

As we move forward and through this weekend, we won’t see much change in the general weather pattern as monsoon humidity continues to hang over the state. For next week, moisture will continue to move around the eastern ridge of high pressure. Showers and thunderstorms remain in the forecast for now, at least until Wednesday. Although some models show the humidity starting to decrease by the end of next week, it is possible that it will linger. Either way, the next few days will be active across Beehive State, so stay tuned for the weather.

Results ? The active weather carries us through the rest of the work week with plenty of monsoon humidity in place.

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – It was a very mixed bag this past weekend as we saw flood warnings (and some actual flooding) on ​​Saturday and then a very dry and calm Sunday. As they say in the weather world, when it rains, it rains.

Dry and stable conditions with seasonal temperatures will persist through Monday under the influence of high pressures. But then we’ll start to see changes as another monsoon wave rolls in from the south and we’ll see a good chance of rain and thunderstorms in southern Utah, especially the southwest region.

By Wednesday we will see this heading north and by Thursday most of the state will be feeling the effects of the surge.

Temperatures will start to drop in the south as storms keep things five degrees or more below seasonal averages. Things won’t fall so drastically in the northern region – at least not until the full monsoon effect can take place. The good news with all of this is that the 6-10 day rainfall potential looks above average for the entire state.

Take-out? Nice calm day on Monday, but things will start to get wet on Tuesday and wetter throughout the week.

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Happy Tuesday Utah! We come out of a hell of a day for the first day of August!

Strong storms rolled through northern Utah last night on a day when we saw below average temperatures along the Wasatch Front!

As for Tuesday, we will see a relatively cool day in northern Utah thanks to the statewide brushing system. Daytime highs will be around 3-5 degrees below normal in northern Utah, with most areas along the Wasatch Front peaking in the mid to upper 80s with a chance of a few points reach about 90 degrees. For perspective, the average high in Salt Lake City on Tuesday is 95.

There will also be a chance of showers and thunderstorms, but not as many compared to what we saw on Monday. In northern Utah, the best odds seem to be during the first half of the day, while in central and southern Utah, the best odds will come in the afternoon and early morning. evening with daytime heating. With more storm potential in the south, keep in mind that flash flooding will also be at least a possibility in most national parks in southern Utah.

In the middle of the week, the humidity will drop a little, which will cause temperatures to rise across the board. There will be just enough moisture for isolated storms on Wednesday, but they will generally favor the southern Utah highlands. For everyone else, it will be near average in all areas with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies.

Thursday will be warm as the potential for wet weather remains low with Salt Lake likely moving back into the upper 90s. The higher heat appears to be short-lived as another surge of monsoon humidity could occur by the end of Thursday to Friday to cool us down and increase the potential for wet weather!

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Happy Monday, Utah! The weekend was dotted with flash flood warnings and regional flood advisories across much of southern Utah as monsoon rain fell quickly and heavily.

Many washes in the area were aptly named because the water often washed away everything it could find. We saw very good precipitation totals as Cedar City received nearly three quarters of an inch and St. George saw over a half inch of moisture. Things will slow down a bit on Tuesday in the south, but we will still have possible areas of flash flooding and thunderstorms cannot be ruled out.

The change will come north where we will see more moisture hitting the upper half of Beehive State. Thunderstorms will be very likely in the afternoon and evening, so be vigilant when preparing to return home. Showers and thunderstorms will be in play across much of the state throughout the week, which will be great news for our water needs.

But the news of the day was that Salt Lake City hit 101 degrees, marking the 21st time this year that the city has hit the century mark. That equals a record that has been set three other times – most recently last year. With the month of August still ahead of us, it’s a safe bet that we will pass this milestone very soon. Although with the thunderstorms this week the temperatures will be a bit cooler.

Takeaway – Storms will dot the state as temperatures cool down a bit this week.

We’re coming off another triple-digit hot day in Salt Lake City where it hit 100° for the 19th time this year. The record number of days in a year is 21 so we’re not that far off!

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Happy Friday Utah! We’re coming off another triple-digit hot day in Salt Lake City where it hit 100° for the 19th time this year. The record number of days in a year is 21 so we’re not that far off! Additionally, we hit the 100° mark for the 16th time this month, breaking the record for the number of times we saw triple-digit heat in the month of July. So far this week we have had a lot of heat in northern Utah with scattered thunderstorms in southern Utah.

As for the forecast, on Thursday we started to see moisture moving into northern Utah which brought storms to higher ground areas, but there may be enough moisture in place for a few isolated storms even in some of the northern Utah valleys including the Wasatch Front. , but like yesterday, the wet weather will favor higher relief. In southern Utah we will see more showers and scattered thunderstorms, with the best chances along and south of I-70.

The flood watch for southern Utah has been extended once again through Friday and extends from lower Washington County east to Glen Canyon and Lake Powell, then north into the Wayne County. It was also expanded north to include the Wasatch Plateau, with the watch now extending through Emery and Carbon counties and for parts of Sanpete, Utah and Wasatch County.

Residents and visitors as part of the watch should monitor forecasts and prepare for possible flooding, especially in flood-prone areas. i.e. slot canyons, dry washes, smooth rocky areas, low lying areas and regions with recent burn scars. With flash flooding a probability in most national parks, today is probably a good day to avoid any hiking in the slot canyons. The best chance of thunderstorms will occur in the afternoon and early evening, coinciding with peak daytime heating.

With a little more humidity across the state, daytime highs will drop 2-3 degrees in northern Utah, with Salt Lake hitting just under 100, while southern Utah is experiencing temperatures similar to those of the last days. Over the coming weekend the high will begin to move west to east over our region. This will cause drier air to return to northern Utah with slightly less humidity in the south. Weekend skies appear to be generally dry in the north, with isolated to scattered storms remaining possible throughout the weekend.

With less humidity in the north, we will increase the heat, as we have become accustomed to for much of this week. As we turn the page early next week, the high will be to the east and should bring a good push of monsoonal moisture that could be seen across the state. This would lead to a higher potential for wet weather and less heat. Stay tuned!

Take-out? Flooding issues persist in southern Utah with isolated storm potential in northern Utah.

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Happy Thursday Utah! We close on weekends! So far this week, every day has followed a similar pattern with monsoon storms in the south and intense heat in the north.

We won’t see too many changes today, but there will be some subtle changes as the monsoon humidity tries to move through northern Utah. Before we get into the forecast, it’s important to note that Salt Lake City hit 100° for the 18th time this year. The record number of days in a year is 21, so we’re not that far off! Additionally, we hit the 100° mark for the 15th time this month, tying the record for the number of times we saw triple-digit heat in the month of July. The only other time this happened was in 1960!

We’ll start in southern Utah where we’ll see more showers and scattered thunderstorms, with the best chances along and south of I-70. The flood watch for southern Utah has been extended once again through Thursday and extends from lower Washington County east to Glen Canyon and Lake Powell, then north into the Wayne County.

This watch also includes Zion National Park, Western Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef National Park. Residents and visitors to Southern Utah should monitor forecasts and prepare for possible flooding, especially in flood-prone areas. i.e. slot canyons, dry washes, smooth rocky areas, low lying areas and regions with recent burn scars. With flash flooding being a probability in most national parks, Thursday is probably a good day to avoid any hiking in the slot canyons. The best chance of thunderstorms will occur in the afternoon and early evening, coinciding with peak daytime heating.

In recent days, monsoon moisture has been pinned to southern Utah due to high pressure from the northwest. During the day the moisture will start to try to move north as the high weakens a bit. While most of northern Utah remains dry with heat similar to the past few days, there will be some more cloud cover and on higher ground, including the Wasatch Back and Uintas, a few isolated storms will be possible. Isolated storms also appear to be a slight possibility in the Uinta Basin. As for the Wasatch front and valleys, it’s partly cloudy with highs mostly in the 90s as Salt Lake City makes another run at 100.

By Friday, enough moisture may work north to introduce a slight chance that storms in northern Utah will include the Wasatch Front, but as we’ve grown accustomed to, the best chance will remain south. Temperatures may drop a degree or two in northern Utah, but it won’t be much.

By the weekend we are back to dry skies and higher heat in the north with more chance of storms in the south, but early next week another wave of humidity from the monsoon seems possible and there is a chance that we will see this surge statewide, stay tuned!

Take-out? Storms are likely with potential for flooding in southern Utah as northern Utah continues with above average heat.

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4) – Happy Tuesday, Utah! A similar weather scenario is shaping up this afternoon along southern Utah with showers and thunderstorms in the mix.

An abundance of monsoonal moisture over the southern half of the state will continue to increase the risk of flooding into the evening.

A flood watch is in effect for south-central Utah, including much of Washington County. The thunderstorms will bring heavy rain to these areas with larger storms after about 5 p.m. and continuing into the evening.

While humidity resides over the southern portion of Utah, hot, dry weather persists in the north. It will essentially be a repeat of what we saw on Monday, with most regions warming by a degree or two.

We are expecting triple digit temperatures in many towns along the Wasatch Front with a high of 100 degrees predicted for Salt Lake City this afternoon. This same weather pattern is expected to remain over the region through Wednesday with warm temperatures in the north and a risk of thunderstorms over southern Utah.

By the end of the week, some moisture will move further north and could bring isolated storms as far north as Utah County. On Friday, thunderstorms will be possible across the state with storms moving in from the southeast. Temperatures will remain unforgiving along the Wasatch front well into the weekend with further triple digit temperatures forecast for Saturday and Sunday.

Bottom Line: Heavy rain and flash flooding remain a concern in southern Utah, while the north will continue to experience heat.

Utah weather: Salt Lake, Davis and Utah counties have the windiest https://lindonutah.org/utah-weather-salt-lake-davis-and-utah-counties-have-the-windiest/ Fri, 22 Jul 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://lindonutah.org/utah-weather-salt-lake-davis-and-utah-counties-have-the-windiest/ If you live in northern Utah, the wind has been hard to ignore for the past few months.

If you live in northern Utah, the wind has been hard to ignore for the past few months.

Strong winds helped several large fires across the state, including the Halfway Hill Fire, which swelled over 10,000 acres in July, while gusts of over 60 mph brought dust from the Great Salt Lake dry lake bed raining down on the Wasatch Front.

On Friday, high winds near the Great Salt Lake wreaked havoc on a construction site and collapsed a partially framed home.

On a lighter note, it has made life difficult for anyone trying to date after having their hair done.

‘I feel like my hair has been in a bun or a ponytail pretty much all summer,’ said a Woods Cross teen, who spent a blustery Friday afternoon shopping at Gateway Mall – her hair in a ponytail, of course.

These aren’t just stories — there was in fact abnormally windy conditions in the Salt Lake Valley, according to data from the National Weather Service.

Windblown dust obscures the Salt Lake Valley on June 12, 2022.

Mengshin Lin, Deseret News

Measure the “wind”: By some measures, it was one of the windiest springs and summers the Wasatch Front has seen in years.

According to Monica Traphagan, chief meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City, one of the best ways to measure “general wind” is the number of days when high winds have been observed.

And 2022 takes the cake.

As of Friday July 22, there have been 49 days when the weather station near the airport recorded a five-second gust of over 35 mph, according to National Weather Service data.

That’s the highest for any year since 1998, the first year the figure was tracked at the airport’s weather station.

In 2011, the station documented 44 days with such fast winds as of July 22 of that year, and 41 days in 2019 on that date.

Another metric is to look at the highest sustained gust recorded each month. In May, the Salt Lake City International Airport weather station recorded a 67 mph gust that lasted 5 seconds.

That’s tied for the third-highest five-second gust documented at this weather station since 1998, the oldest that data is available. The second was 71 mph in 2004 and the first was 75 mph in 2006.

And in June this year, the station recorded a five-second gust to 60 mph, which is tied for the seventh highest five-second gust since 1998.

Still, the National Weather Service’s Traphagan warns that it’s incredibly difficult to define a “windy” month.

“We don’t really keep data on ‘average’ wind, or things of that nature, because it can be quite variable from site to site,” she said. “It is therefore difficult to say quantitatively whether there has been more or less wind compared to the last few years.”

It’s nearly impossible to really pinpoint when the windiest summer was in northern Utah, or even in Salt Lake County, Traphagan says.

But using the measurement above, we can say with certainty, yes – you’re not going crazy. It’s been very windy in Salt Lake City.

“It certainly seems to be the case,” Traphagan said.

Earth, wind and fire: High winds can be “a double-edged sword for air quality,” says Ashley Sumner of the Utah Department of Environmental Quality.

“When we’re talking about ozone, wind can be a really good thing,” she said. “But there are times when the wind, when not combined with precipitation, produces dust.”

That was the reality for residents along the Wasatch Front Friday afternoon — and likely dozens of afternoons this spring and summer — as an ominous white cloud rose from the Great Salt Lake, blocking the Oquirrh Mountains and settled in Utah, Salt Lake, Davis and Weber counties.

Still, Utahans can thank high winds for the lack of ozone sitting above the valley this summer and blowing smoke from wildfires.

“Less wildfire smoke and less ozone resulted in better air quality compared to last year,” Sumner said.

As well as the wind, it’s also been hard to ignore the record-breaking heat in the Salt Lake Valley this summer – temperatures hit a record 107 degrees on Sunday.

You can thank, at least in part, the wind.

“Conditions that cause you to have windy conditions like this are also often going to result in warmer conditions,” Traphagan said.

Indeed, the weather conditions that cause wind are usually dominated by high pressure, which in summer brings warm weather.
