SALT LAKE CITY — So far this summer has felt cool and wet. What’s been going on?
Temperatures have been about average, if not a few degrees higher, for June 2023. So, why does it seem like summer hasn’t even arrived? Luckily, the wet weather and late summer have delayed Utah’s fire season.
According to Sam Webber with the National Weather Service, Utah has gotten accustomed to abnormally high temperatures in June.
“It’s been warm, but it hasn’t been nearly as hot as it was (in the) last couple of years,” Webber said.
Dry weather is on the way, according to Webber. A storm system is moving in next week and with it, temperatures will rise.
