A slight cooling trend, along with late afternoon thunderstorms and rain showers, was expected to bring some small relief to northern Utahns on Saturday.
High temperatures along the Wasatch Front this weekend were predicted to range in the mid-90s, retreating from the triple-digits expected on Friday. Indeed, Friday's heat flirted with tying a 1961 record for most days (21) of 100-degrees or more. Whether that record was tied or topped awaited the official National Weather Service tally at Salt Lake City International Airport.
However, southern Utahns despite some isolated precipitation expected Saturday afternoon could look for continued highs near or above 100 degrees.
