Monday's high reached 81°, 10° above average for this time of year! Hopefully you like the warmth because it looks like it will stick around for a few more days.
We'll start today in the low 60s under clear skies. By afternoon, highs will reach the low to middle 80s. That's record territory, and we'll do the same on both Wednesday and Thursday before a front halts the heat.
Rain chances remain close to zero most of this week. Thursday will be our last day in the 80s before a cold front sweeps through early Friday morning, bringing a slight rain chance and cooler air for Friday and the weekend. Highs will be in the mid 70s Friday, but Saturday's high won’t make it out of the 60s.
