Marc Giauque, KSL NewsradioHow many 100 degree days could we have this summer?
Two days in June, and six in July have hit the big century mark at the airport; not that 100 is much more than say 99. Kevin Barjenbruk of the National Weather Service, "Either way you slice it, it is hot."
But Barjenbruk says it could be worse. In 1994 there were 21 century-mark days. Could it happen again? He says, "Certainly that would be a high mark to achieve, but if you look at the next few days coming up, there probably the potential to reach 100 degrees three or four of the next six days.
Barjenbruk says the potential for super-hot days stretches well into August, sometimes into September.
