SALT LAKE CITY — Thursday marks the 24th day of this summer of temperatures reaching 100 degrees in Salt Lake City. Also, the third day in a row of temperatures hitting 100 degrees, says Matt Johnson with KSL TV.

However, Johnson said you can expect cooler temperatures as soon as Friday due to a low-pressure system moving in from the west. This weather moving in will bring storms across the state over the weekend.

Johnson also says that we could see another 100-degree day up until early September.
