Posted at 5:34 AM, Sep 08, 2021

Smoke will be widespread today but some of it will get pushed north of the area tomorrow. A ridge of high pressure will keep it hot and dry through Thursday. The ridge will get nudged east by a weak weather system moving to our north on Friday. There's a chance of showers and thunderstorms across the north late Friday and Saturday. Temperatures will drop back down into the 80s along the Wasatch Front this weekend.
