Macon tied a heat record Monday that had stood for more than 50 years.
As of 3:47 p.m. Monday, the temperature at the Macon International Airport was 100 degrees, which is a tie with the record set in 1954, according to the National Weather Service.
"It's been a hot one," said meteorologist Stephen Konarik with the National Weather Service in Peachtree City. "We could still break the record."
