TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- The year's first triple-digit temperatures prove to be a record-breaker in Topeka, where the thermometer hit 105 degrees to eclipse the previous high for July 9 set in 1980.

National Weather Service meteorologist Kris Craven tells the Topeka Capital-Journal (http://bit.ly/13KhzYX) that Tuesday's heat index topped out at 109 degrees at the weather service's office near Philip Billard Municipal Airport.

It was the first time since Sept. 3 that temperatures reached 100 degrees.

Temperatures in Topeka hit the century mark 25 times in both 2011 and 2012. That's less than half of the city's record of 59 100-degree days set in 1936.
