Record-breaking temperatures kept coming Monday after a hot weekend as a heatwave baking Western Washington made its mark on Skagit County with triple-digit temperatures.

Before noon Monday, it was already 100 degrees in the Marblemount area, in the upper 90s around Sedro-Woolley and in the 80s on the western end of the county.
