Officially, summer arrived on June 21, but summer heat hasn’t really hit Utah — until this week. According to the National Weather Service, the state will see its warmest temperatures so far this year.
Forecast highs for Salt Lake City will flirt with triple digits, but aren’t expected to quite hit that mark. The expected highs are 97 on Wednesday and Thursday; 98 on Friday; 97 on Saturday and Sunday; and 96 on Monday and Tuesday.
Nighttime lows are not expected to fall below 70. There's a slight chance of showers on Sunday, the only precipitation in the forecast.
No rain at all is expected in southern Utah over the next week, and it will be sizzling in St. George. The expected highs will be 104-106 through Tuesday, with overnight lows in the mid-70s.
