SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Happy Friday Eve, Utah! We have another “rinse and repeat” forecast with high pressure starring in the Utah weather show.
The bottom line? High pressure will bring us gorgeous weather through the close half of the workweek with above-average warmth and plenty of sunshine!
Another beautiful day ahead with mostly sunny skies with daytime highs that run roughly 7-10 degrees above seasonal norms. Given this time of the year, above-average warmth is just downright comfortable for most spots. In northern Utah, we’ll see 60s and 70s for most with mid-70s along the Wasatch Front. In southern Utah, highs will mainly range in the 70s and 80s with St. George being the warm spot, in the upper 80s. Into tonight, it’s mostly clear skies with dry conditions yet again.
Dry weather will stick around through the end of the week with no significant changes anticipated. As the high pressure slowly works from west to east, the northwesterly flow we have now will be replaced with more of a southerly wind. The southerly winds will allow temperatures to warm a bit more to close out the workweek with highs by Friday ranging from roughly 10-15 degrees above seasonal norms as the sunshine holds strong.
By the weekend, high pressure will start to move out of the way. This will result in more clouds moving in as temperatures ease down by a small fraction. As a whole though, the weekend is looking really good so get out there and enjoy this warm and quiet stretch while we have it.
We know all good things must come to an end, so if we’re looking for changes in our weather, those are likely to come early next week. Forecast models are becoming increasingly optimistic that our next system will move in by Monday. This system will help break down the ridge of high pressure and will likely usher in a wetter and much cooler pattern as we move through next week. Being more than several days away though we’ll continue to fine tune the forecast so stay tuned!
