It's official: June 2010 in Hagerstown was the hottest June on record.

And brace yourself, because another heat wave is on the way, according to the National Weather Service.

The average temperature for the month in the city was 76 degrees, topping the previous hottest June by one degree, according to Hagerstown weather observer Greg Keefer's website, i4weather.net.

In 1899, the average temperature for the month was 75 degrees, according to the website.

This past June saw three days in which the city tied or set a record for a high temperature, including June 27, when the mercury reached 98 degrees, according to Keefer's website. That topped the record for June 27 of 97 degrees set in 1966, the website said.

The website also said there were 10 days in June when the temperature reached 90 degrees or higher.

The National Weather Service said another heat wave is expected to move into the area by July 4, producing an expected high Sunday of 94 degrees.
