On average, the first 90 of the year comes on June 8th, according to the weather service. The earliest first 90 since 1874 was on May 2, 1947.

By Thursday, a drop of about 10 degrees is expected in northern Utah.

With such warm, dry weather, the weather service advised that hazardous fire weather conditions will be present throughout the week in southwest Utah, where vegetation is critically dry.
