At this point, I rate the odds that this July will go down as the hottest on record in Salt Lake as better than 50/50. That is admittedly a risky forecast to make with three weeks left in the month, but we are off to a hell of a start. Through the first 9 days of July, the average temperature for the month was 86.5ºF. If that were to hold for the entire month, we would beat 2014 by a full 2.4ºF.
