SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Happy Tuesday! We have a beautiful dry day expected with temperatures continuing to rise across the state. Our southwest winds helped remove thicker forest fire smoke from our air across much of the state, but the smoke crept into the northern Wasatch Front and parts of the south and from western Utah.
The smoke has impacts on visibility and air quality issues, with the air being rated moderate by the Department of Environment Quality for all of northern Utah with one exception.
Cache Valley could see the air mix in the “unhealthy for sensitive groups” category. Expect lots of sun today, hazy in places, with near-average temperatures throughout the beehive state.
Temperatures will peak in the ’80s and’ 90s with generally clear skies, with Salt Lake racing to 91, which is only a degree above average for this time of year. Saint-Georges will be back to triple digits today, averaging 99 at this time of year, we’re pretty close to seasonal daytime highs. We will see the mid-80s in the Uinta Basin, the mountain valleys, along the I-15 corridor and the central part of the state. A drier model will want to last the entire work week.
At the end of the line ? A mild Tuesday ahead with lots of sun, sometimes gusts and smoke seeping into some of our skies.
