Yuma, Arizona, is the hottest city in the U.S., based on normal daily maximum temperatures. It is also the city with the highest recorded temperature, 124 degrees F (51 degrees C). 

A temperature of 136 degrees F (58 degrees C) was measured at Al Aziziyah, Libya, making it the highest recorded global temperature on record. 

The highest temperature in the U.S. was recorded at Death Valley, California, on July 10, 1913. It reached 134 degrees F (57 degrees C) on that day. 

Occasionally during a thunderstorm, odd heat bursts can occur. One such incident occurred in Glasgow, Montana, in September 1994. At 5:02 a.m., the temperature was 67 degrees. At 5:17 a.m., a heat burst hit, sending the temperature up to 93 degrees. By 5:40 a.m., it was back down to 68 degrees.  
Only two U.S. states have record highs no greater than 100 degrees--Alaska and Hawaii. 

The record for the most consecutive days above 100 degrees F (38 degrees C) is 160 days in Marble Bar, Western Australia. This occurred from October 1923 to April 1924.
