SALT LAKE CITY — We shouldn’t be in these upper 90s temperatures. It’s September but it is just still so hot.
“It was a nice cool morning; at least we were starting out in the 60s. But it zooms up pretty quickly in the afternoon,” said KSL Meteorologist Grant Weyman.
And the wind is a story Tuesday morning, whipping up a grass fire at the mouth of Weber Canyon.

Weyman says it may not cool down until early next week. Afternoon clouds and mountain storms come back this week.
St George saw a micro burst and hail Monday afternoon. Lightning strikes may have caused the power outages throughout Utah County Tuesday morning.
And the air quality won’t be good Tuesday. The National Weather Service in Salt Lake City says smoke from the northern fires is making it into Northern Utah.
