FARGO, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's largest city reached 100 degrees for a short time Friday, but it was long enough to tie a daily record.

The National Weather Service says the mercury hit the century mark in Fargo at 4:57 p.m. That tied a record high for July 20 that was set in 1960.

The normal high for this time of year is 83 degrees.

Weather service meteorologist Brad Hopkins tells The Forum that the area will get a slight break from the heat wave Saturday, with a weak cold front keeping the high around 90 degrees.
