Take a look at the record highs set across the region yesterday.  Louisville's 103 temperature reading was the hottest ever in June, the hottest since 1988, and the 5th hottest temperature recorded.  It's only the 11th time we've hit 103 or above. Louisville also only dropped to 78 this morning for a low,  just one degree below the warmest low temperature on record.

Indianapolis hit 104, the hottest ever in June.  Bowling Green hit the record of 106, and how about Evansville at 107 for an all-time June record!  Frankfort and Lexington both reached over 100 degrees and only about one degree from hitting the record.

Expect much of the same today.  The record in Louisville for today is 102, set back in 1952. 

THURSDAY'S WEATHER EXTREMES:
   HIGHEST TEMPERATURE (DEGREES F).........................114 Bullhead City, Ariz.
   HIGHEST HEAT INDEX (DEGREES F)..........................115 Ypsilanti, Mich.
   LOWEST TEMPERATURE (DEGREES F)..........................28 West Yellowstone, Mont.
   LOWEST WIND CHILL (DEGREES F)...........................26 Stanley, Idaho.
   HIGHEST WIND GUST (MPH).................................69 Mt. Washington, N.H.
   HIGHEST PRECIPITATION (INCHES)..........................1.03 Ketchikan, Alaska.
   ON THIS DATE:
   On this date in 1878, a weather observer noticed a storm remain stationary over South Park, Colo., for much of the day. The observer, however, was standing on top of Colorado's Pike's Peak some 50 miles away. It was reported that whitened ground from hail could be seen until sunset. (source: AP)
