A break from the smoke (and bad air quality) with this week’s rain
SALT LAKE CITY — After record-breaking days with triple-digit temperatures, now, smoke is lingering in the Utah air and affecting air quality.
However, storms are expected this week and with them the chance for cleaner air.
The storms could come as early as Tuesday, bringing rain throughout the state until Friday.
The smoke could return by the weekend, but air quality is expected to improve by then.
Just what the doctor ordered! 🌧️

It’s the cooler temperatures that will keep bad air quality at bay. For three consecutive days this week, northern Utah will stay below 80 degrees. The moisture in the air helps, too.
