This summer is already starting to be sweltering, but is it record-breaking?

The Weather Channel created a map of each state’s hottest temperature on record. Oklahoma's high temperature is 120 degrees. And believe it or not Hawaii and Alaska share the same record high.

It's still early yet, so there's time for records to be broken. So what about those record high temperatures for cities in Oklahoma?
