Ever wonder what the hottest temperature ever recorded in your state is?

You can probably guess which state is the only one to break 130 degrees Fahrenheit (Why else would they call it Death Valley?), but some of the top ten might surprise you.

If your state didn't make the cut, you can see the National Weather Service's full list of records on its website.

(Note: The list doesn't count down from 10 because there are quite a few ties.)
