Boise, Idaho and Glasgow, Montana hit the century mark (in terms of temperature) for the first time this year:
These were both respective records for the date of June 3rd with both cities beating old records of the upper 90’s. While this may seem like a very early scorcher (and it is) it is technically not the earliest 100° day for either city.
Nonetheless, it is early heat. Both Glasgow and Boise usually don’t reach their first 100° day until after the Fourth of July, whereas this year it happened after Memorial Day!
Additional record highs were set across the Northwest, High Plains, and Southwest United States Thursday.
