Utah forecast: Ah heck, it’s hot — pass the Big Gulp
Triple digits » 100 degrees and more in north, 111 degrees expected in south.

How hot is it? It’s so hot, that if New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg visited Utah this week, even he of the super-sized soft drink ban might be chugging down a Big Gulp.

The National Weather Service predicted triple-digit temperatures as the norm, from the state’s northern to its southern borders, on Wednesday —a forecast that mirrored that for Tuesday.

However, while the Wasatch Front looked to bake in heat of 100 degrees or slightly higher, that would have been considered a cooling trend for southwestern Utah, where St. George looked for 109 degrees on Wednesday after a 111-degree forecast for Tuesday.

There was a glimpse of some relief for the region, though: thunderstorms were expected to move into the state late Wednesday evening, bringing cooling cloud cover and possibly rain.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature Wednesday was pegged at 104 degrees, down only slightly from Tuesday’s forecast for 103; Ogden looked for 102 and 100, respectively; Provo 101 and 100; Logan 100 and 98; Wendover 102 and 103; Duchesne 90s both days’ Cedar City 97 and 99; St. George 109 and 111; and Moab 102 and 99 degrees.
