Utah nudged, topped heat records; Monday could be cooler
First Published Jun 24 2012 10:58 am • Last Updated Jun 24 2012 11:30 pm

Sunday scorched Utah.

Provo hit 100, tying a record, and although Salt Lake City reached 100, too, that was two degrees shy of the record for the capital city.

In southern Utah, visitors at the tourist-friendly Zion National Park and Hanksville were greeted by temperatures of 103 and 105, respectively.

Price settled for 98 degrees, but that was still good enough for a record. Price reached 97 degrees on June 24, 1990.

Temperatures Monday were expected to be marginally cooler, reaching the high 90s in most of the state. There’s also a 20 percent chance of rain in Salt Lake City and most of Utah.

But there won’t be much relief for firefighters battling blazes. Monday will be another red flag day.

Monday’s air quality on the Wasatch Front was expected to be poor. The Utah Department of Air Quality recommended that unusually sensitive people should consider reducing prolonged outdoor exertion.
