Highs Monday will reach the upper 80s and lower 90s.

Highs Tuesday will jump into the mid and upper 90s across central Virginia.  The heat index will surpass 100° in some locations.

It looks like Wednesday will be the hottest day of the week with highs between about 95° and 100° away from the coast.  The muggy air will make it feel a few degrees hotter.

A cold front will move through next Saturday and bring slight relief, taking temperatures back into the 80s.
