SALT LAKE CITY — Temperatures in Salt Lake City hit triple digits for the first time this year.

National Weather Service meteorologist Glen Merrill says Monday's high of 103 marked the hottest day of the year so far. The previous high was 99 degrees, hit several times in the past couple of weeks.

Merill says the scorching summer day fell one degree short of the record for this date, 104, set in 2007.

He said the weather is expected to cool down to the lower 90s the rest of the week.

Merill says this year's first 100-degree day came more than one month after the first one in the summer of 2013, which was the hottest on record in Salt Lake City.
