Salt Lake City, UT – Utah is on alert as a significant weather event is poised to impact the region today. Residents can expect heavy rain, gusty winds, and frequent lightning as moisture spreads northward. The National Weather Service (NWS) in Salt Lake City has issued warnings for widespread thunderstorms affecting all of Utah and parts of southwest Wyoming, with the most intense coverage predicted over higher terrain areas.

According to the NWS, the valleys of southern Utah are at a heightened risk for flash flooding this afternoon and evening. Key areas of concern include Capitol Reef National Park, the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, and the Glen Canyon Recreation Area. The deep moisture in place could lead to rapid water rise in slot canyons, normally dry washes, and regions near recent burn scars.

Residents are advised to monitor weather updates closely and avoid traveling through flood-prone areas. Hikers and outdoor enthusiasts should exercise caution and consider alternate plans.

The extended forecast for Salt Lake City shows temperatures peaking at 93°F today with cloudy skies and significant rain. Thursday will see a high of 86°F with partially sunny conditions. The following days will generally be sunny, with highs in the mid-80s to high-90s. By the weekend, temperatures will rise sharply, reaching 98°F by Sunday. The weather remains sunny and hot through the beginning of next week, with temperatures fluctuating between 87°F and 98°F.
