Significant Weather

The National Weather Service has issued:

  • A Hazardous Weather Outlook for all of Utah.
    • Western two thirds of Utah – Critical fire weather conditions are expected across south-central and southeast Utah through this evening. Southerly winds will increase across much of the area again Wednesday and continuing across southern and eastern Utah on Thursday as the next cold front slowly makes its way through the state. There is a potential for critical fire weather conditions where these winds combine with low humidities and critically dry fuels.
    • Eastern Utah – Showers and thunderstorms will increase in coverage today and tonight as an upper trough sweeps through the area from west to east. Gusty winds, locally heavy rain, and lightning are possible with these storms. Drier conditions are expected Wednesday then showers and thunderstorms will return Thursday and Friday. Gusty winds, locally heavy rain, and lightning are also possible with these storms.
  • A Red Flag Warning for the Henry Mountains and Grand Staircase until 9:00 p.m. tonight. West to southwest winds with gusts up to 30 mph are expected with relative humidity as low as 11-15%. The combination of gusty winds and low humidity will lead to rapid spread of fires.
