How hot is Utah's forecast approaching the midweek? Hotter than a billy goat in a pepper patch. So hot that one pig cries to another, "I'm bacon!"
Seriously, its time for broad-brimmed hats, shades, handfuls of sunscreen lotion, shorts and sandals out there, whether you call hot northern Utah or the state's hotter southern reaches home.
The Wasatch Front looked for daytime highs in the mid-90s to near 100 on Wednesday, up 3-5 degrees from Tuesday's forecast. Mostly clear, sunny skies were the rule.
Southern Utahns likely would shiver in such comparatively mild temperatures, though. Utah's Dixie expected the mercury to climb to 107 degrees or more on Wednesday under clear, searing skies, matching Tuesday's forecast.
