High temperatures will range from 103° to 108°. Make sure to hydrate and practice heat safety. A gusty south southwest wind and dry air will give us elevated fire weather.

Thursday looks to be the hottest day of the week. Record breaking heat is expected. Highs will get well into the middle to upper 100’s. It will be a dry heat with gusty south southwest to southwest winds. Fire weather will stay in the forecast.

Hundred degree weather will return for Friday. The atmosphere will be a little less stable, so a shower or a thunderstorm cannot be ruled out.

A cold front will move through Friday night into Saturday morning. A gusty southwest wind will turn to the northwest as a cold front moves. This will finally put an end to our unusually hot temperatures. Rain chances don’t look to promising with the front.

The weekend will see seasonable temperatures. Sunday will feature a slight chance of storms.
