Storm system coming may bring problems, cooler temps and cleaner air

Storm clouds over southern Utah on July 14, 2018.

SALT LAKE CITY — We’ve got a storm system coming into Utah Tuesday and it could bring big problems. It also means we will cool way down, see some cleaner air, and even some snow in the mountains.

The big problems, the forecast calls for hail, and torrential downpours.

There’s a flash flood watch for much of the state. If the rain comes down too fast, it could cause problems on hillsides, burn scars, dry streams and slot canyons.

There’s also a red flag warning for a lot of Utah, too. If the storms come with lightning, it could mean new wildfires could start.

But more moisture from the storm system coming,  could also help fire suppression efforts in Parleys Canyon.

Forecasters say the storms and cold front Tuesday through Thursday will cool the temperatures down by around 20 degrees. The smoky air should clear out. And high elevations like the Uinta Mountains could see snow.
