Sandy UT is definitely in the HOT part of the country
A century and climbing is promised to Sandy UT for the next week with perhaps a 3 degree dip for the National Holiday.
I live in that part of the country currently labeled HOT - although not as HOT as some. Assaults on records appear the order of the day, for each day. for a sustained period.
We have been given the possibility of a stray thunderstorm tomorrow (possibly the most expected, least likely event of the season). June is rapidly entering the history books of passing without any evidence of precipitation.
Utah achieves its sparce grandeur by being high altitude desert receiving 10 - 12 inches of rain a year. (In my past life I was used to 120 inches as being a bare minimum.)
Last winter's snow has just retreated to the higher altitudes, leaving brilliant green evident on the lower slopes of the Wasatch Front. Meanwhile in the valleys, grasses in abundance have become sere, inviting combustion from any dry electrical event.
Sales of fireworks to celebrate 4th of July are under way, if somewhat incongruous in this heat. Signs indicate they are not to be ignited within 150 feet of the point of sale. Cool heads might caution restraint.
I think I shall skip my tie today and defer to ice cubes and evaporative neck bands.
