Will Utah’s air quality improve on Tuesday?
SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Happy Tuesday! A warming trend begins today with temperatures climbing a little closer to the seasonal average of 94 in Salt Lake City.
Unfortunately, smoke will continue to impact air quality and visibility today.
Smoke from the wildfires continues to envelop Utah with the help of a westerly flow and the thickest smoke will target eastern and central Utah to start our Tuesday, with noticeable effects along the Wasatch front.
Air quality issues persist, with air expected to hit “unhealthy for sensitive groups” in northern and eastern Utah, with “moderate” air expected in southern Utah .
A passing cold front has cooled temperatures for the start of the week, but high pressure remains over the intermontane west, so warmer temperatures are on the bridge with a warming trend until the end of the work week. . Daytime highs will be between the upper 80s and lower 90s along the Wasatch front.
Central Utah will experience a low 90s with southern Utah hitting the 90s and triple digit numbers based on elevation. Increased humidity in southern Utah could result in an isolated storm over the southern mountains and near St. George and / or Kanab.
Conclusion? Smoky skies and warmer temperatures are on their way for your Tuesday!
