Today was hot, with a high of 90, until a storm front showed up. One of the cells in the storm front was about to hit my city until it suddenly curved to the east, giving me zero rain, while towns just east of here became subject to flash floods.

We had a cold front move through Salt Lake yesterday morning. We spent all of yesterday in the 60s and today in the 70s, and last night's low was 46 - uncharacteristically cold for June.

Unfortunately, this refreshing cool weather is just about over. Tomorrow will be in the lower 90s, and then starting Sunday we're in for several days of absolutely brutal hot weather as a huge high pressure system builds into the 4 Corners region. Highs will be at or over 100 for most of the week with lows in the low 70s. Unsurprisingly, the National Weather Service has already issued an excessive heat watch.

Several long-standing records at SLC are going to be in jeopardy with this heatwave. The current forecast calls for 6 days in a row of 100+ temperatures, which has never occurred in June before (current record is 4). In addition, we are already forecast to tie our all-time June record high of 105; temperatures this high have only been measured on 20 days in the entire period of record (since 1874). There's even an outside shot we might reach or break our all-time record high of 107.

Oppressive heat and humidity this weekend. Maybe working outside yesterday wasn't a good idea.

I am in Palm Springs through Thursday. Apparently it will be peaking in the low-120s this week. I have never been in heat like this before. Even today's 109 reading was a first-in-a-while for me.

Did get some rain over the weekend, a good dent but still running 5-10 inch deficits across the area. Long term pattern suggests a more active period next week so some more rain chances hopefully

Ongoing heat wave across the southwest US including here in SLC. We hit 101 yesterday and 103 today, both of which were daily records and the earliest ever occurrences of those temperatures. Tomorrow's forecast high is 105, which would tie the all-time June record high set on two days back in 2013. Unsurprisingly, an excessive heat warning is currently in effect.

Unusually humid and muggy, thanks to a storm system from Hawaii.

We're looking to join the heat wave with temps in the 80s by the weekend. Not looking forward to that.

Salt Lake City reached a high temperature of 107 degrees yesterday. That not only shattered the old record for the day (102, set in 1974), it also broke the record for all of June (105, set on two days in 2013) ... and it ties the all-time high, set in 1960 and again in 2002. Several other stations in the area also set new monthly or all-time record highs.

Today will be a welcome day of "relief", with a forecast high of... 98. Usually I'd be complaining about that, but the last couple days have really put a new perspective on things and I'll take any cooldown I can get. Highs will be in the upper 90s-100 range the next few days, and a heat advisory is in effect through Friday. After that temperatures will drop again into the mid 90s for the weekend with maybe a shot at a thunderstorm or two, although those would be more likely to produce wind and lightning than any sort of measurable rainfall (as if our fire season wasn't bad enough already).

It was 122 yesterday here in Palm Desert. The bloody pool couldn't even keep up. My Pepsi was like coffee after a short while.

I have felt humidity and high temperatures. This was worse. Dry heat is more comfortable, but not at these temperatures. This is like burning heat.

Wow, looks like upstate NY and the Pacific Northwest are the only locations that didn't crack 70 degrees!

It's an unseasonably cool 73 here today.

We did hit 70 in the Seattle area today and are climbing up to 87 on Monday.

My friend in Riverside CA was complaining about the weather there, so I checked it as well...


...It's somewhat nicer there, but NWS San Diego deemed that as deserving an excessive heat warning, while NWS Norman is like "nope, y'all are good", which made me laugh.

Wouldn't it have been two hours earlier there?

Also: is your point that an excessive heat warning should be issued for Norman? Or that Riverside is not deserving?

I think it's interesting/funny that different NWS offices seem to have different standards for what qualifies as "excessive heat", such that two places can get more or less the same weather but one gets a warning but the other doesn't. I don't remember seeing excessive heat advisories here with a HX of less than 100.

And yes, the time shown there is Central time, so it would be 89 at 11:40am there and 91 at 1:40pm here. Though I am not really sure if that means the high there is going to be higher than it is here or not. Here, absent a front or anything, the temperature tends to shoot up to near the high for the day in the morning and stay relatively constant (perhaps warming one or two degrees; it's now 4:30pm here and it's only warmed to 93) between then and sundown. I'm not sure if Riverside follows a similar pattern or not.

From my experience, the NWS offices do indeed issue warnings relative to the regular weather. Anything over 90 is likely to get an excessive heat watch here in Seattle, and over 95 a warning. But places east of the mountains (Yakima, Tri-Cities) would not get a warning at that temp, otherwise the whole summer would be a permanent heat warning/watch.

And really, that makes sense. I don't need to be warned of normal weather. Highlighting an approaching abnormality is certainly the primary point. That said, it seems odd for Riverside to get an excessive heat warning for mid-90s. The IE gets into the 90s quite frequently in summer (most if not all days). Although in fairness to the NWS office, the average high in June is not 90s.

Out west, peak temperature is normally 2.30pm to 5.30pm. I recall this not being the case out east. I really don't understand why.

When I was in Palm Springs/Palm Desert earlier this week, it was in the 80s for my morning walk around 7.30am, and only peaked near/into 120 quite late in the afternoon.
