SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Well folks, that’s a new record.
Out of the 31 days in July, 11 of them had a maximum temperature of at least 100 degrees which would have this July tied for 6th most 100 degree days.
“As many have felt and seen, this July was a scorcher with 27 of the 31 days being at or above 95 degrees, which would make sense as to why our overall average temperature was a record-breaker,” explains ABC4 meteorologist Cesar Cornejo.
This isn’t the only heat-related record shattered in Salt Lake City in recent months.
In June, The Salt Lake City airport weather station reached a temperature of 107 degrees under this historic heatwave. This is the hottest temperature ever recorded in Salt Lake.
