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.
