|A scorching start to early September|
On September 1st, we set a record high for the date and tied the September maximum record as well with 100˚F.
On September 2nd, we set a record high for the date with a 98˚F.
On September 3rd we tied the record high
maximum minimum for the date with a 74˚F.
On September 4th we set a record high for the date with a 98˚F.
The pattern is thankfully changing. We will have a weak trough passage on Friday and then another on Sunday. Look at the GFS forecast for 1500 UTC (0900 MDT) Sunday. It's not much, but it is a trough in the westerlies moving through Utah.
It may be enough to drop our maximum to near 80˚. Indeed, THE NWS IS GOING FOR A HIGH OF 79˚F ON SUNDAY. I repeat. THE NWS IS GOING FOR A HIGH OF 79˚F ON SUNDAY.
Wouldn't that be pleasant.
