Thunder. Lightning. Wind. Rain. But at least the forecast for Utah heading toward the weekend is a bit cooler.
The National Weather Service says storm clouds will bring rain, occasionally heavy, to central and southern Utah, but in the northern half of the state, thunderstorms were expected to bring dry lightning and that prompted forecasters to issue a "Red Flag" wildfire danger warning.
That advisory extends from northern Utah's Logan running west to Wendover, east to Vernal, and then south to central Utah's Delta and Manti areas. The warning was expected to expire at 8 p.m. Thursday, but wildfire risks were expected to remain a concern as the storm system continued to hover over the region through Friday.
