Today is expected to be the hottest day of the week across Northern Utah. If we hit 101 in Salt Lake City, it'll not only tie the record for the day but also for the number of triple digit days this year. The previous record of 23 days was set yesterday.

Deep moisture in place across Southern Utah will bring more showers and thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. Moisture moving north will bring a chance of more widespread late day storms across most of the area tomorrow and through the weekend. As a result, it won't get as hot over the next few days.
