It won't be today. We've had a weak trough passage and the air behind it is a smidge cooler than yesterday.
Through the weekend, our best chance may be Sunday, but it's going to be close. There is a weak trough approaching from the west and if it comes in late in the day or in the evening so that we're in the warm southerlies, we'll make a run at 100. The NAM and GFS forecast 700-mb temperatures for 6 PM Sunday are 16.8ºC and 16.5ºC, respectively, which is a bit higher than it was yesterday afternoon. Both models put the trough over northern Utah (GFS) below at that time.
In case you are wondering, the extended range forecasts show nothing but hot and dry for the next week and beyond. Steel yourself for full bore nuclear summer. It's against my better judgement to icon-based extended forecasts (see Ten-Day Icon Based Forecasts Are Bogus), but The Weather Channel forecast for Salt Lake City pretty much tells the tale.
