Same for SLC. Yesterday was 82 in the valley and we're going for a
record-breaking 84 today. It's also been 28 consecutive days since any
measurable precipitation. The current jet stream pattern is entrenched and
forcing anything and everything to the north. The only saving grace is that
at least the nights are getting down into the mid-40's and once last week
flirted with the lower 30's. But it's still dry, dry, dry.
