Summer heat sizzles in Sidney with new record of 109 degrees

How hot did it get in Sidney Monday? How about the hottest it has ever been in the city’s history!

The National Weather Service recorded a temperature of 109 Monday, which is the all-time record high for Sidney on any date in history.

The Service says Sidney’s 109 broke the previous all-time high of 107 set back in 2006 and in 1954.

Sidney wasn’t alone in Nebraska’s Panhandle sitting in stifling dry heat.

Alliance touched 104 to set a new record. Chadron’s 105-degree mark Monday was just shy of a record, and Scottsbluff hit 106 to set a new June 25th high.
