Summer on Pace to be Hottest Ever in the Salt Lake Valley

Our Salt Lake Valley summer is now the fourth hottest ever...with several weeks of the season left, to make a run at the all-time record.

Long before you'd ever heard of the Beatles, there were 21 days -- in 1960 -- that reached 100 degrees or more.

In 2013, we're at 13 of those triple-digit days...with two more likely, before Pioneer Day (July 24).

The high temperatures have caused multiple problems -- including asphalt buckling in several locations on I-15.
