107°F. That was the temperature recorded at the Salt Lake City International Airport yesterday, June 15, 2021.
Only twice in the past 147 years of record-keeping in Salt Lake City has the Utah capital witnessed a temperature so high. Once in July of 1960 and again in July of 2002.
For now, the record remains tied at 107ºF. But will the record be broken? And if so—when?
