Salt Lake City Ties Record For Highest Temperature Ever Recorded


SALT LAKE CITY — Records continue to fall during this heat wave as Salt Lake City hit 107 degrees Tuesday, breaking the previous daily record of 102 degrees and tying the highest temperature ever recorded in the city.

At 107 degrees, Tuesday became the hottest day of the year on the Wasatch Front.

The daily record, which was set in 1974, fell when SLC hit 103 degrees at 1:40 p.m.

Historically, SLC has seen highs of around 84 degrees on June 15.

Most of Utah experienced triple-digit heat Tuesday, and red flag and excessive heat warnings remain in effect — some through Thursday night.

Crews are also battling six active wildfires during the record-setting heat wave.
