SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – We have done it folks! The Salt Lake City airport weather station has reached a temperature of 105 degrees under this historic heatwave. This ties the all time record high temperature for the entire month of June.
This new record comes in during a stretch of record breaking days where daily highs have been broken in succession. On top of tying the record for hottest June temperature record, today has also blown out the daily record of 102 degrees that was set back in 1974.
We remain under clear skies and a very warm southerly flow which could continue to boost temperatures into this afternoon, breaking the all time record. Be sure to stay tuned on ABC4 Utah for updates, on-air and online.
