Utah could see rain on Thursday



SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Cloud cover and showers continue to move across Utah. After more than a month of no measurable precipitation at Salt Lake City International Airport, we finally see some light at the end of the tunnel.

Showers and storms are expected throughout the day, with the higher elevations providing the best chance of rain.

Northern Utah will benefit the most from storm activity today as we see more humidity there. While it might not be a lot, we still expect to see around 0.03 ″ of rain until Friday morning, and could be higher locally depending on the cell.

It also poses a threat of lightning, which could start another wildfire, prompting the red flag warning which has been extended until tonight due to storm hazards.

Northern Utah, eastern Nevada, and southern Idaho will be in the 80s with clouds and storms above us. Southwestern Wyoming will experience peaks in the mid to 1970s with clouds and storms as well.

Central and southern Utah expect to see another day of peaks in the mid-80s and low of the 90s, but not as much chance of rain due to the shift in humidity northward .

Tonight, clouds and showers hang around the Grand Bassin. The best chance of overnight rain will be closer to the Idaho-Utah border before the rain returns to Utah. The lows will be slightly cooler, around the 60s and 70s for almost everyone.

In short, our chances of rain look better today as we see activity of downpours and storms in all parts of the state. Make sure you stay aware of the weather if you are going to be outside.
