June Temperature Record Will Be Obliterated

With the intense warmth of the past few days, this June is now in uncharted territory for the highest mean temperature in Salt Lake City.

With one day remaining (today), the average temperature for June 2015 now sits at 77.1ºF, well ahead the record of 75.7ºF n June 1988.

The overnight minimum was 77ºF and the high today is expected to once again eclipse 100, so the mean temperature for the month will increase further.  Although there's a slight chance of a thunderstorm today, which could lower the minimum temperature a bit below the 77ºF recorded this morning, it looks like we will obliterate the June temperature record.

  1. Just last Friday, http://wasatchweatherweenies.blogspot.com/2015/06/more-records-will-fall.html , you posted the average temp at 75.4. Doing the math, we ought to hit 77.4 by the end of the day, for a boost of 2 full degrees to the monthly average in just 4 days. That's hot.
