Salt Lake City also reached triple-digits on Tuesday for the 22nd time this summer, which broke the previous record of 21 times. The old record of 21 times had been set during three previous summers, including last year.

 

More interesting weather 

While the northern end of the state was dealing with the warm temperatures, various parts of southern Utah were dealing with another day of flash flooding. 

According to the NWS, the areas in and around Hilldale and Colorado City experienced flash flooding from the Short Creek. The flash flood warning in the area was in effect until 8 p.m. Wednesday. 

The NWS also issued a flash flood warning for the town of Veyo and the surrounding area. It was reported to the NWS that water was on the roads in poor drainage areas. 

Earlier Wednesday, the NWS issued a special weather statement for La Verkin, Toquerville and Virgin due to the likelihood of wind gusts of up to 50 miles per hour.
