Tuesday's Pinpoint Forecast: Active weather anticipated today. A FLASH FLOOD WATCH has been issued for southwest Utah for this evening, a RED FLAG WARNING has been issued for the west deserts, and a FIRE WEATHER WATCH is up for northern Utah including the Wasatch Front. Storms will begin to spread north today, possibly reaching the southern end of the Wasatch Front by late this evening. It will be another hot one, with Salt Lake hitting 102, and most of the state in the 80s and 90s. For Pioneer Day, thunderstorms could develop around the Wasatch Front through the afternoon and evening. The parades will be dry, but firework displays in the evening could be threatened. Storms are possible across the state on Wednesday, and it will be a bit cooler because of that cloud cover and storm activity. Highs will be in the 80s and 90s. Thursday and Friday will have isolated storms, but this weekend could be quite active in the thunderstorm department.
