PROVO, Utah — On the heels of thunderstorms in parts of the Wasatch Front Wednesday night, more thunder and lightning could be on the way. The BYU football team had to deal with lightning delays in their Week 1 game in Florida, and they might have to deal with them again during their game against the Utah State Aggies.
“We are looking at a chance of thundershowers by kickoff,” KSL Meteorologist Matt Johnson said. “I hope it doesn’t delay the game, but there is a chance to see some lightning in the early half of the game.”
BYU and Utah State are set to kick off from LaVell Edwards Stadium at 6 p.m. today in Provo.
Johnson said thunderstorms are possible in the valleys from Thursday afternoon through the evening. Calmer, nicer weather is expected for the weekend.
“Rain totals from anywhere from five hundredths to two-tenths of an inch … under a heavy thunderstorm … [you] could see a quarter of an inch or more,” Johnson said.
For the weekend, get ready to feel the fall vibes with highs in the mid-70s and decreasing clouds heading into next week.
“The leaves are at peak fall foliage for a lot of locations across the Wasatch Mountains,” Johnson said. “One of the big take-home messages for the weekend is we have some beautiful fall weather.”
