June 2013 turned out to be the third warmest in Salt Lake history.

But July 2013 stands alone, at number one.

National Weather Service officials say the average temperature in Salt Lake through the month was 84.1 degrees.

That beats out the 84 degree July average, recorded six years ago.

There have also been 18 days this summer with triple-digit high temperatures -- just three short of the record, recorded in 1960 and repeated in 1994.
