Red Sun

Posted Jul 28th - 1:57pm

I've lived here in Utah for 36 years and I don't remember the sun ever looking so red.

Why was the sun so red this morning, Friday, July 28, 2006?

Sizzling Summer Days

Posted Jul 23rd - 7:55pm

I was wondering how many days we have had at 100+ degrees this year as well as the most recorded in a year? Thanks, Steve


Here's the deal, an average summer in SLC as measured at the airport, features only 5 days at 100 degrees or greater. So far this summer including today, Sunday July 23rd, we have had 8 of those days.

Humidity and Health

Posted Jul 22nd - 4:09pm

Hello, I have a question about the weather. I do not live in SLC, but very much am wanting to know the answer to this question. No one will believe me!

I live in Maine. I know you don't have much humidity out there but I wondered if you could answer a question about it anyway. I have been trying to find meteorologists who might be able to help me figure this out.

I have a lot of trouble with the humidity. I have trouble breathing, walking, thinking. It feels like someone is sitting on my chest, and it feels like the pressure is going to make my head explode. No one has any idea what I mean when I describe this and I think many think I am making it up. I do not have asthma that I know of; I do not wheeze or gasp or cough; my actual breathing might be intact but the pressure kills me.

Dryest States

Posted Jul 19th - 2:25pm

Hi, What are the five driest states, and what is the average amount of rain they get in a year? Thanks! Charla


Hmmm......once I started thinking about this, it gets pretty complicated! Look just at our state, the south is a desert and in the north during winter at our ski resorts we get pounded. So which states measure the least amount of precipitation when averaged out?

High Temperatures

Posted Jul 19th - 12:24pm

Saturday, at 3:00, the weather channel (on line) was reporting the current temperature was 105. But that evening, you reported that the high for the day was 102 or 103 (I can't remember which). What's the deal with that? And the temp on my front porch (not in the sun) actually read 106! I know why there could be a difference with my thermometer, but the weather channel?

Who is correct? Thanks, Suzanne D. WVC


Did it rain at my house?

Posted Jul 19th - 11:19am

I am attempting to find out if we had measurable rain activity in theBountiful area on June 13th and 14th of this year. Your web site is excellent for recent weather but I could not find a history link. I work for an insurance company and we are trying to determine if a loss was caused by a microburst on the above mentioned days or a broken pipe from a week earlier. Could you please advise on this.

Thanks- If there is a better place to contact your weather group for this type of information please let me know.

The Hottest Day

Posted Jul 19th - 10:55am

Recently it was reported that July 13th 2002 was the hottest temp. ever recorded in SLC at 107 degrees. Because I'm old I recall that in July of 1960 (24th or 25th I believe) a temperature of 107 degrees was also recorded. Do I remember correctly?? Did the 2002 temp. equal/tie the 1960 record, or are there tenths of degrees involved here??

Thanks for your reply.

I know that virga is rain that evaporates before it hits the ground because our atmosphere is so dry. Why are we so concerned about watering the lawns between 6:00p.m. and 10:00a.m.. It seems that if we watered when some of the water could evaporate, we would be doing ourselves a favor so the virga could turn to rain. Am I way off in my thinking?
