The all-time U.S. high temperature record for June was tied Sunday in Death Valley, Calif., according to the National Weather Service.
The temperature soared to a beastly 129 degrees late Sunday afternoon in the desert location, generally regarded as one of the hottest locations on the planet. This ties the all-time June record high for both California and the entire United States.
A 129-degree reading was also recorded at Volcano, Calif., (a former town near the Salton Sea) on June 23, 1902.
The 134-degree temperature measured in July 1913 in Death Valley remains the all-time world-record temperature.
Temperatures in the upper 120s are again forecast Monday and Tuesday at Death Valley before "cooling off" to the mid-120s by midweek.
