Hello, I would like to know what month is the hottest in Northern Utah. Also what week or weeks in that month are typically the hottest. Thanks. Rod C.

**********************************************************

If you've gotten your July bills for running the AC a lot, you already know, it's been a very hot summer.

If we take a look at some averages, we can see which weeks are the hottest. Today, to consider hot, we will only consider the day time highs and not daily averages or morning lows. Just afternoon high temperatures.

Let's use the handy weather calendar over at weatherunderground.com it's super easy to read so we can all understand what's up with the averages. The week with the highest average temperature (for highs) is the last week of July or so. July 22nd to today, Wed August 3rd is typically your warmest time of the year. Thankfully, we're enjoying the cool down after a hot July and it won't be that warm this afternoon. On this calendar, you can click toward the top and go back to view the previous month.

Which month is hotter than on average? July or August? Your answer is actually July. July comes in with an average high of 90.6 and August at 88.7. So we're heading toward slightly cooler weather and before you know it, fall will be here.

Stay cool!
