Record Heat

Post by Brack »

We will likely continue to see more of this record heat as this planet continues to get warmer.
SALT LAKE CITY — Utah's capital city has once again matched its all-time hottest temperature ever recorded.

The temperature at the Salt Lake City International Airport reached a sweltering 107 degrees shortly before 3:30 p.m., matching four previous times in city history dating back to 1874, including July 17 this year, the National Weather Service reports.

Many more daily temperature records were also broken across the state, as has been the case for the past few days.

Wednesday marks the first time the official Salt Lake City temperature has reached 107 degrees multiple times in the same year. It first reached 107 degrees at the airport on July 26, 1960, before that record was matched on July 13, 2002, and June 15, 2021, prior to this year. It's also the fifth time that the city has broken its all-time September temperature record this month; prior to this year, Salt Lake City had reached a maximum of 100 degrees only three times in September.

Salt Lake City's triple-digit temperature streak also reached nine straight days, matching a stretch in July 1960 and August 2016 as the second-longest streak in city history.

With the heat exacerbated by climate change, some communities across the region have seen record high temperatures: Sacramento hit 116 degrees Tuesday, the hottest day on record for the state capital, according to the National Weather Service. Records were also broken all over the Bay Area, with some cities shattering previous daily records by more than 10 degrees.
