PARK CITY, Utah — The National Weather Service (NWS) cautioned boaters and swimmers to watch for wind gusts and lightning strikes at Jordanelle Reservoir, as scattered afternoon thunderstorms move into the region. 

Scattered thunderstorms expected in northern Utah

Meteorologists did not issue a thunderstorm warning, but said wind gusts of 35 miles an hour could accompany the storm. They also expected cloud to ground lightning strikes.

Those possible storms come hand-in-hand with muggy, hot temperatures, said KSL meteorologist Grant Weyman. 

“We are looking for another pretty hot week with temperatures soaring back up to near 100 again,” Weyman said. “Very very hot, even though we get a few storms today.” 

Storms may impact southern Utah slot canyons

The National Weather Service also cautioned hikers recreating in southern Utah about thunderstorms with heavy rain. Specifically, the NWS’s Salt Lake City office tweeted about that possibility along Willis Creek, Bull Valley Gorge and the Cottonwood Narrows, near Cannonville.

Slot canyons, such as those trails, can become treacherous and even deadly after thunderstorms, as rain runs off the canyon walls and floods creeks and washes.
