Last week was a hot one in Cortez, with daily high-temperature records falling like dominoes. Local weather observer James Andrus reports that the high of 84 degrees on May 8th tied the 1989 record, and the highs on the following three days all broke records. Temperatures have cooled somewhat since then.
