Thunder. Lightning. Rain. High temperatures in the 90s to 100s. Yes, it must be mid-August in Utah.
The National Weather Service predicted low- to mid-90s along the Wasatch Front on Thursday, echoing Wednesday's forecast. Forecasts for both days also called for afternoon and evening storms, driven by winds of 10-20 mph.
The same predictions applied to the state's southern reaches, except along with thunderstorms and rain showers came temperatures expected to top 100 degrees in the St. George area.
