Ridiculously Hot First Half of July

The first 15 days of July are in the bag and it has been ridiculously hot in Salt Lake City.  The average temperature for those 15 days was a whopping 86.6ºF, 2.3ºF warmer than the first half of July 2002.

Such a temperature, if it were to hold throughout July, would also easily set the all-time monthly record.

  1. Just commented via twitter too. Curious as to why night time temperatures seem to be much more about average than daytime highs. Product of climate change or something different? Or a mixture of both? Any research on the subject? Thanks for your amazing blog!
