SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Hot weather that blanketed North Dakota and South Dakota led to some weather records.

Temperatures were in the 90s and the triple digits in the two states. The mercury climbed to 110 degrees in Buffalo, S.D.

A slight cool-down was in store Wednesday, with high temperatures forecast in the 80s and 90s in South Dakota and the 70s and 80s in North Dakota.
