It was a scorcher on Tuesday and temperatures were just above average for Guam's dry season but it didn't break any records. Guam recorded a high temperature of 87 degrees, said Landon Aydlett of the National Weather Service Guam Office. "We definitely did not break any records today, but when you go out to and from your car, especially in a paved area, that sun is unobstructed (and) it's been baking the surface," he said. "We had a maximum temperature of 87 degrees, which is just above normal. We average about 85 degrees for this time of the year with a low of 75 degrees overnight." He said Guam's record is about 91 degrees. "So we're just shy of that. Obviously on Guam in the tropics we don't have too much variation in our temperatures unless we have a big rain event." He noted, however, that in the dry season, conditions are ripe for grass fires.
