I'll be driving up Scenic 12 from Bryce and spending 2 nights in Torrey in mid-August. I'm trying to plan things around the expected heat and T-Storms at that time of year. Given these weather constraints, I'm assuming hikes will need to be mornings and late afternoon/dusk. Here are some questions I hope others can help with.
1. While no one can predict the weather, at that time of year is there a certain time of day that the storms tend to occur? Does the timing differ between Bryce and Cap Reef?
2. Do the storms move through and then clear up, ie. can I hike after the storms in areas that are not flood prone?
3. Does it stay clouded over after the storm, or would there still be nice sunsets?
