Monday was the second day in a row Utah temperatures reached record high levels, according to the National Weather Service in Salt Lake City.

Sunday, 16 high temperature records were either set or tied. Monday, 19 heat records were either set or tied, based on records kept since 1874.

The warmest area was Delta at 74 degrees. Richfield and Provo were next, both showing high readings of 73 degrees. Wendover, Springville, Hanksville and Escalante each sent the mercury up to 72 degrees — about 20 degrees warmer than normal for this time of year.

Spanish Fork, Pleasant Grove, the Utah Test and Training Range and Salt Lake City also had readings in the 70s. Brigham City saw a record high of 67 degrees, and Duchesne's reading came in it at 64 degrees.

Three other areas tied their records — Laketown at 62 degrees, Coalville at 67 degrees and Cedar City at 70 degrees.

Alpine, Farmington and Zion National Park set record high lows Monday at 49, 49 and 51 degrees, respectively.

The NWS expects today will be much cooler — about 43 degrees for a high in the Salt Lake area. A dry cold front moving over the area will keep temperatures low through the Holiday weekend.
