Wednesday was hot, and the record books now reflect that.

A high of 98 degrees was reported Wednesday afternoon at the Kansas State University Agricultural Research Center, located just south of Hays.

The previous record for the day was 93 degrees, set in 1934, 1962 and 2004.

The overnight low dipped to 55 degrees.
