The NWS says high temperatures across the state will average 5-10 degrees above normal for mid-July. Eastern Utah, much of which is under an excessive heat warning, will see the hottest temperatures of the year.

The NWS says they expect closer-to-normal temperatures on Tuesday as a cold front moves in.
