SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Salt Lake City saw the hottest June on record following the warmest winter ever.
The National Weather Service said the average temperature last month was 77.5 degrees, breaking the previous record of 75.7 set in June 1988.
The average monthly low of 64.5 degrees also beat the 63.3 degrees in 1918.
There were four triple-digit June days recorded at Salt Lake City International Airport this year. The normal average high for the month is 83 degrees.
Half of the month tallied 90 degrees or above for daytime highs, holding steady from June 15 through June 30.
This comes after the warmest winter ever, which was also noticeably drier than usual.
The temperature during the period of December 2014 to February 2015 broke the previous record set during the 1977-78 season.
