Unless the temperature was above 104*F for several hours....I wouldn't worry much.
It might ONLY hurry the hatch just a bit, if at all.

P.S. Keep the humidity DOWN ( about 40% to 50% until "Lockdown" ) and at "Lockdown" bring it up to around 65% to 70% or so....

Thanks! Is "lockdown" the last few days?

Yep. Begins on Day 18 sometime....and continues until END OF HATCH.
( End-of-Hatch shouldn't be until ALL the viable eggs have hatched ....OR perhaps day 24 or 25.....often later for birds other than Chickens.)
IF you have a significant DROP in temperature ( over several hours ) the Hatch could be delayed somewhat.
