Default weather forecast?

My wife and I are planning to make a trip up to SLC between the 22nd and the 26th. I looked on some websites and it appears that the above average temps will be in effect through at least the 22nd. What do the local tv stations say about the weather and do they forecast that far in advance? Any chance for the heat wave to break? We were hoping to experience what the average weather would be in the summer in SLC.

Thanks.

104 in dry heat equals ..... no biggie. way better than austin with a 95 temp and a 90 percent humidity, at least you can hang in the shade, and it gets cool at night.

Utah rox!

hey trebek!

Well, living in Las Vegas, I know what a dry heat is, and having lived in the midwest for nearly 20 years, I know what the difference is. However, that said, one of the reasons we are thinking of moving from Vegas is the high "dry" heat in the summers. As you say, 104-109, what's the diff. So, if it is 104 in SLC, there's not much point in driving all that way to see that it's the same as Vegas. Normal temps this time of year are supposed to be around 90-95. We were hoping to get that kind of experience on this trip. Can't say as it will do us much good as to checking out the weather if it's the same as home :-)

It's been between 98-102 for weeks now. Right now it is 100 out. No reason to think that will change in the next week or so.

Accuweather.com (http://www.accuweather.com/us/ut/salt-lake-city/84101/city-weather-forecast.asp?partner=accuweather&u=1&traveler=1 - broken link) has forecasts going out 15 days. Of course, the further out you go, the less accurate it becomes.

I looks like right when you're planning on leaving, the forecast is for the temps to finally drop below 100 degrees.
