This has been the seventh wettest August on record for Salt Lake City—and there’s still a week left to go.
“We rank [this August] in Salt Lake City as the seventh wettest August on record with the amount of water—well over two inches of water here,” KSL Metereorologist Grant Weyman said Monday.
Salt Lake City has more thunderstorms in August than any other month according to Current Results. August storms that produce half and inch or more of rain in one day occur just once every five years. This month, Salt Lake City has already recieved over two inches of rainfall after lots of heavy rain, thunderstorms, and flooding impacted the state’s capital.
