A round of storms and potential floods are coming to much of Utah, which continues to bake.

Daytime temperatures will stay close to the triple-digits for northern Utah, with highs of 98 and 97 forecasted for Sunday and Monday, respectively, in Salt Lake City. St. George, meanwhile, can expect highs of 100 and 103 on Sunday and Monday, respectively, with a chance of thunderstorms.

Meteorologists expect heavy rain and thunderstorms to arrive in central and southern Utah Sunday, in the late morning and early afternoon. The storms could result in flash flooding in prone areas like slot canyons, burn scars and normally dry washes, according to the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City.

Air quality, meanwhile, remains healthy statewide into at least Monday, according to the Utah Division of Air Quality.
