September was the hottest month in Salt Lake City and it wasn’t close
SALT LAKE CITY — The month of September didn’t just break the record for the hottest month ever in Salt Lake City, it shredded it. That’s according to KSL meteorologist Kristen Van Dyke.
“We had seven days in a row of 100s,” Van Dyke said. “We’ll never forget that. We hit 107, tying our all-time record for the highest temperature ever recorded in Salt Lake City. And we’ve only hit 100 three times ever in September before this year.”
She says the average temperature in Salt Lake City during September beat the previous record by three degrees, helping make it the hottest month. Van Dyke also says Salt Lake City has had some warmer-than-normal temperatures during the overnight hours, which have caused those average temperatures to increase.
