As we head into the dog days of summer, 2019 is projected to be among the top five hottest years on record. That's according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Boise and surrounding cities could break a record Tuesday, but keep a rain slicker handy for the storm moving in Wednesday night.

“Today we’re going for a high of 71, the record high for today is 73 in Boise, so it’s going to be close,” says National Weather Service meteorologist Dave Groenert.

Normally this time of year would see highs around 53 degrees.
