Utah Weather Forecast: Monday, June 14

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – Record-breaking heat is on for the Great Basin as we continue our journey into triple digits for the next few days.

This heat dome is really taking hold of our area bringing very hot and dry air to our area allowing us to see the high heat.

Due to the heat, the National Weather Service has issued Excessive Heat Warnings and Heat Advisories for most of the week as we see no relief even overnight.

Heat-related illnesses caused by this extreme heat are of concern to many people in Utah and eastern Nevada.

Hydration will be key. And if that wasn’t enough for our weather threats, we have a red flag warning in effect through Tuesday night for much of Beehive State. The same dry, hot air bringing in the high heat also creates a critical fire danger for us.

Northern Utah will expect to see very little, if any, cloud cover throughout the day and temperatures will be warm!

Our highs will be in the mid to high 90s to low 100s. These expected highs are about 20 degrees above normal for this time of year and can be a real big hazard to people.

In central and southern Utah, we don’t lose any sun or heat either. We expect to see our highs in the upper 90s to mid 100s with plenty of sun in store.

Winds begin to pick up primarily for the lower half of the state during the afternoon hours, which means fire danger is expected and may cause explosive fire behavior for existing fires and perfect conditions for new fires.

Long story short, Monday will be quite warm for this time of year and there won’t be much shade from the sun.

Heat-related illnesses such as dehydration, heat exhaustion and heatstroke are possible. Please refrain from strenuous activities during the hottest hours of the day, normally between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m.
