WENATCHEE — Tuesday’s blistering temperatures melted some decades-old records around North Central Washington.

Wenatchee was one of the region’s hot spots, topping out at 104 and breaking the previous record of 99 set in 1967, said Steven Van Horn, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

Other long-time records toppled Tuesday as Omak reached 103, beating the previous record of 102 set in 1942, and Grand Coulee Dam sizzled to 101, besting the old record of 98 set in 1940.
