"Hailey has been above 90 degrees since July 14. Thatís well above normal. Normal for this time is low 80s," said Greg Kaiser, of the National Weather Service in Pocatello.

The high temperatures, which peaked at 100 degrees this past week, occurred on Friday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, July 18, 20, 21 and 22.

The thermometer in West Ketchum pictured above was showing 99 degrees in the shade at 7 p.m. Monday, July 21. Today, July 23, the forecast calls for temperatures hovering around 100 again.

Last year there were approximately four days in a row in July when the temperature reached 100. Boise has been reporting near record highs each day this past week, and continued Tuesday with 105 degrees.

July is the hottest month of the year for the area, and has the lowest amount of precipitation at less than .5 inches.

According to the NWS there were record lows set for Southeastern Idaho in June.
