SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) The National Weather Service says the summer of 2013 was the hottest on record in Salt Lake City.

The average temperature of 80.7 breaks the previous record of 79.3 sent in 2007. The National Weather Service considers June to August as summer. Temperatures come from a gauge at the Salt Lake City International Airport.

This is the latest record to fall during the searing summer in Utah's largest city. Salt Lake City has recorded the most days ever of 95 degrees or higher, and the second-most days of triple digit heat.

July was the hottest month on record in Salt Lake City.

The three hottest summers in Salt Lake City have come in the past six years; and the five hottest within the past two decades.
