Sizzling Hot Temperatures

The hottest day in over eight months has settled across the Midwest. Temperatures across Nebraska and Iowa have skyrocketed well into the 90's -- the first time since last September.

A few spots across the Heartland have even already eclipsed the century mark. Both Wayne and Norfolk, Nebraska soared to 100 degrees shortly before 1 PM Tuesday afternoon. For Norfolk, the afternoon readings totally shattered their old record high of 96 set back in 1941.

Omaha, too, has at least tied the official record high for this date as of the 1 PM reading when the mercury jumped quickly from 90 to 96 in just one hour!
