Thought Tuesday was hot? Well, Wednesday may be even hotter, with high temperatures predicted to be slightly warmer.

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

By Thursday, however, a drop of about 10 degrees is expected in northern Utah. And a 20 percent chance of thunderstorms is predicted for Salt Lake City on Friday, with a high temperature of 85 degrees predicted.

In St. George, forecasters predict high temperatures will hover in the mid-90s through Friday.

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.
