More Records Will Fall

With five days to go (including today), it looks like this June will go down as the hottest on record in Salt Lake City.  

The average temperature for the month currently sits at 75.4ºF behind only 1988 (75.7ºF) and tied with 1918 (75.4ºF), with the latter observation likely collected in town rather than at the airport.

In all likelihood we will break the record by a sizable margin.  The NWS forecast for Salt Lake shows that the next few days will be the hottest for the summer so far.  In case you are wondering, the all-time record high temperature for June at the Salt Lake Airport is 105ºF set on June 28 and 29, 2013.

The heat is on.  Ick.
