Getting warmer

The National Weather Service is reporting that heat records are going to start falling today. The record for today in Minden was set in 1926 with 99 degrees. We’re going to start getting closer on Friday when the record for that date was 96 set in 2003, and the forecast is for 97. On Saturday the record temperature is 97 degrees, also set in 2003. It’s forecast to hit 98 so stand by.

Not quite a record here, though
