It’s been wet in the Wasatch Back this week, and rain is in the forecast for the next several days. Will the precipitation help get Utah out of its drought?.

This week’s rain has been a welcome respite from recent heat waves that saw temperatures regularly creep above 100 degrees, but water levels and rainfall totals remain far below normal.
