Utah Weather: Friday June 11th

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Good Friday! We started with cool temperatures with nocturnal lows in the 1930s, 1940s and 1950s, depending on the altitude.

We’re going to warm things up for our weekend of work with temperatures approaching normal for this time of year.

The average maximum in Salt Lake City at this time of year is 82 and we will be staying there to reach our daytime maximum. Today is the prime day of the week as cooler temperatures are expected in the wake of our cold, dry front and winds are easing statewide.

With calmer wind conditions the fire danger diminishes a bit, and after several wildfire starts today will be a nice and much needed break. Temperatures along the Wasatch Front will reach the upper 70s and lower 80s with mostly sunny skies.

A low to mid-80s range is on the bridge for the central and northeastern part of the state, with low 90s appearing in places like Moab and the Four Corners. The hot spot will be St. George, after a day in the 80’s, the mid-90’s returns with sunny skies.

Our weather warnings expire for our Friday, and the heat is back in full swing by the weekend. Daytime highs will rise above average with a monster heat wave on the bridge for next week.

Take advantage today because a high pressure ridge will strengthen next week and heat records will drop again!
