Yeah, they broke records too. https://twitter.com/NWSFlagstaff/status/1405342892193837065 If record heat was felt in Arizona's mountains, that must have meant it was a record hot day in the southern valleys too, right? Yep. https://twitter.com/NWSPhoenix/status/1405300649303056385 OK. Fine. Let's go up to South Dakota because surely there must have been some cooler air *somewhere* right? No. https://twitter.com/NWSSiouxFalls/status/1405295732890865668 The record heat will be on the move Thursday and Friday.
