It was a sweltering 4th of July in Bismarck as another record high temperature has been set in Bismarck.

Previously, Bismarck had a record high temperature set as recent as June 9 of this year. Another record high temperature was tied today at a scorching 102, according to the National Weather Service in Bismarck.

Only cities in Texas, Arizona, Nevada, and Utah recorded higher temperatures than what Bismarck reached today. In Florida, the highest temperature was 94 degrees in Jacksonville and Tampa Bay. Miami didn't even reach the 90s.

That being said, hot temperatures are expected once again for July 5th, with a forecasted high of 99. Be sure to take the necessary precautions on days when high temperatures are expected. If you’re working outside, frequently take breaks in the shade, don’t leave kids or pets unattended inside a hot car, and stay hydrated.

Not only do we get to celebrate our independence, we can also celebrate surviving a triple-digit day in Bismarck. Happy 4th!
