Records set for 100 degree days in SLC and flash flood warnings statewide
SALT LAKE CITY — Thursday marks the 24th day this summer of temperatures reaching 100 degrees in Salt Lake City. Also, the third day in a row of temperatures hitting 100 degrees, said Matt Johnson with KSL TV.
However, Johnson said you can expect cooler temperatures as soon as Friday due to a low-pressure system moving in from the west. This weather moving in will bring storms across the state over the weekend.
Johnson also says that we could see other 100-degree days up until early September.
