A blanket of heat will cover Utah through the weekend, but there is some relief in sight after the holiday.
The National Weather Service reports that temperatures will basically be awful through Wednesday. In Salt Lake and Tooele counties, it'll be triple digits every day, with a peak Monday and Tuesday of 104 degrees. And in an unusual reversal, southern Utah will be cooler, with highs peaking around 103 degrees Saturday and dropping a degree or two most days after that through the week.
The western two thirds of the state also remained under a hazardous weather outlook, with forecasters warning of rain and flash floods, particularly in slot canyons.
