Yeah, it's early June, but high temperatures the past six days at the Slat Lake City airport have been 91, 96, 97, 91, 95, and 94ºF. Forecast high for today: 97ºF.
Relief is on the way, however, in the form of an early monsoon surge. The GFS forecast valid at midnight tonight (0600 UTC Saturday) shows the setup with a high amplitude upper-level ridge centered over the southern Great Plains and an upper-level trough along the Pacific Coast.
By noon (1800 UTC) Saturday, high precipitable water values of more than 20 mm cover much of the low-elevation regions of the state. The GFS is also high on precipitation, although instead of being widespread, it's more likely we'll see scattered showers and thunderstorms tomorrow.
Temperatures will also be cooler, with a bit more humidity. Hooray!
