Did you know the phrase "dog days of summer" dates back all the way to ancient Greece?
It's true, and apparently means that since time immemorial people have been experiencing the kind of warm, lazy days Utahns will have this weekend. According to the National Weather Service, the Wasatch Front will see highs in the mid 90s Saturday with possible thunderstorms in the afternoon. Temperatures will hold steady through the weekend, but should start inching up during the work week.
In southern Utah, highs should reach the upper 90s Saturday, peak around 100 degrees Sunday, then hover in that same range during the week.
