Potentially record-setting hot temperatures and a high fire danger were expected to dominate Monday across Utah.
In anticipation of the high fire danger, the National Weather Service issued a red flag warning through Tuesday for a large portion of the state, including Salt Lake City, Ogden, St. George and Moab. Meteorologists said winds were expected to increase through Monday as a cold front approaches. That front is expected to move across northern and central Utah during the day Tuesday and arrive in southwest Utah on Tuesday evening.
But for those already tiring of the hot temperatures, the incoming front was expected to cause temperatures to start to cool starting Tuesday.
