It's summer and it is getting hot. But do you know what the highest temperature ever recorded in North Dakota was?

The Weather Channel put together a brief video detailing the highest recorded temperatures in every state.

In North Dakota, the highest recorded temperature ever was a scorching 121 degrees. So far this year, we have seen temperatures get near the mid 90s but we have been nowhere near our state's record.

It may be difficult for you to find someone who remembers that day as the 121 degree temperature was recorded back in Steele 80 years ago on July 6, 1936 according to the NOAA.

The hottest temperature ever recorded in the entire US was in Southern California at 134 degrees.
