Cheyenne and Laramie set new high records for the date on Sunday, and several other communities in the region approached heat records as well.

That included a 101-degree reading in Chadron, Neb. The Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service posted this statement on its website:

"Yesterday (September 4th) was a HOT day across the region! It was so hot in fact, that Cheyenne broke their daily high-temperature record and Laramie tied theirs! Another round of potentially record-breaking temperatures is expected today!"

And the agency says more records may fall today (Sept.5):

6 AM Monday, September 5th: Another round of record to near-record high temperatures are possible this afternoon. Hot temperatures are expected to continue through the week so be sure to follow good heat safety!
