The Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service says Monday was another day of record to near-record setting heat in southeast Wyoming and the Nebraska Panhandle.

The agency posted this statement on its website:

September 5th Evening Update: Two new record high temperatures were set today with a few other locations coming within a degree or two of the record. Another hot day expected on Tuesday with temperatures similar to today, but a few degrees hotter across western Nebraska. Later this week, the first decent cold front of the season arrives Thursday night resulting in temperatures closer to average for this time of the year.
It looks like more of the same through the next couple of days or so:
4 AM Tuesday, September 6th: Potentially record breaking heat will continue through Thursday with high temperatures in the 90s and 100s. However, a strong cold front looks increasingly likely Thursday night! This will drastically drop high temperatures on Friday and Saturday, with highs in the 60s and 70s.
