This week will produce the hottest stretch of 90° weather since the middle of last July. Highs will get close to 100° Wednesday and Thursday. While many of the record highs will be safe, there is the potential to tie them Tuesday and Wednesday.
Along with the heat will come an increase in humidity. High temperatures, combined with muggy conditions (dew points near 70°), will produce dangerous heat index values: near 100° Tuesday and near 105° Wednesday and Thursday. Click here for some information and safety tips about heat.
We are seeing signs that the jet stream will change to allow somewhat cooler air to return early next week.
