BIG changes this week as far as the rain and temperatures go...
Monday's Pinpoint Forecast: Summer's not over yet, but the first frost and freeze is possible for parts of the state this week. Starting off the week, it will be warm, windy, and much drier. Highs will get well up into the 80s to near 90 for the Wasatch Front, 70s for the higher elevations, and mid 90s for St. George. South wind will pick up today and especially Tuesday, gusting higher than 25mph. A sharp cold front will move through Tuesday night, making for a beautiful, cool, and crisp Wednesday with highs only in the 60s and 70s. The higher mountains will have temps in the 30s and 40s. Wednesday and Thursday nights, the Wasatch Back up to Cache Valley will see the first frost and freeze of the season, so cover up those gardens and flowers! Friday and Saturday will warm back up above average, 80s for most of the state, but then another cool down will follow for Sunday and Monday. Besides an isolated thunderstorm or two, this week will be much drier than last week's torrential rain.
Have a great Monday!
