It’s hot out there: Salt Lake City heads for 100 degrees Monday
First Published Jun 08 2013 08:37 am • Last Updated Jun 08 2013 11:17 am

It may be time to head for the hills, the pool or at least the shade as scorching temperatures in Utah push the mercury higher through the weekend and beyond.

Though National Weather Service forecasters only expected highs to reach the upper-80s Saturday in Salt Lake City and Tooele, they predicted a high in the mid-90s Sunday. By Monday, the thermometer will likely soar all the way to 100 degrees.

Highs in Utah County will be similar but slightly cooler, with temperatures maxing out Monday in the mere "upper-90s." In Weber County, highs will hit 90 degrees Sunday and will climb a few more degrees Monday.

Southern Utah will be a veritable inferno, climbing from a high of 107 Saturday to 108 Sunday. By Monday, however, temperatures will drop to the comparatively refreshing upper-90s.

The Utah Division of Air Quality expects moderately clean air Saturday in Salt Lake, Davis, Utah, Duchesne and Weber counties. By Sunday air quality should be good across most of the state, with the exception of Cache County where it will be moderate.

Salt Lake City’s high temperature Saturday was expected to reach 87 degrees, followed by 96 Sunday; Provo should see highs of 87 and 94, respectively; Ogden, 85 and 91; Logan 83 and 90; Wendover 90 and 95; Duchesne 85 and 90; Cedar City 93 and 95; St. George 107 and 108; and Moab 97 and 99.
