Salt Lake City, Utah – On Wednesday, the National Weather Service confirmed that Salt Lake City hit 107 degrees.
This ties the record for the hottest day ever in Salt Lake City, but there is a catch-all of the other 107 days were in July.
We are in September and so far this month we haven’t seen one day under 100 degrees. Add in the last two days of August and we’ve had 9 straight days of 100 or more temperature.
The nine days mentioned above are just one day away from the record for days in a row in triple digits.
Nine is also the number of days in a row that we’ve broken a record held by that date.
The old record of consecutive days was four, so we’ve smashed that record.
And, we have broken 100 degrees 34 different times this year.
The previous record for the number of days past the century mark was 21.
