The average high in Salt Lake City this time of year is 82 and we will hover right around there for our daytime high. Today is the pick day of the week, as cooler temperatures in the wake of our dry cold front are expected, and winds relax statewide.

With calmer wind conditions, fire danger declines a bit, and after several wildfire starts, today will be a nice and much-needed break. Temperatures along the Wasatch Front will make it into the upper 70s and low 80s with mostly sunny skies expected.

A range of low to mid-80s is on deck for the central and northeastern portion of the state, with low 90s showing up in places like Moab and the Four Corners. The hot spot will be St. George, after a day in the 80s, the mid to upper 90s return with sunny skies.

Our weather warnings expire for our Friday, and the heat comes back full throttle by the weekend. Daytime highs will jump back above average with a monster heatwave on deck for next week. 

Enjoy today because a ridge of high pressure strengthens next week and heat records will fall yet again!
