IT'S HOT - Temperatures in most places are already in the mid 80s this morning, meaning we did not fall out of the 80s overnight. That's when you know it's going to be a long, hot day. Expect much of the same weather today with afternoon highs in the upper 100s. The projected high today is around 109-110, beating out the previous record of 105 set in 2012. Excessive Heat Warning is still in effect through Monday evening.
THE WEEKEND - We will see more record breaking temperatures this weekend with project afternoon highs in the low 110s on Saturday and the upper 100s/low 110s on Sunday as well. The current record for July 20 and the 21 is 107 and 106, set back in 2012 and 1974, respectively.
NEXT WEEK - Not much extreme change will go on with our extreme weather. Though a trough in the Great Lakes will push a cold front south by the latter half of the week which will cool us down to the upper 90s by late next week followed by a small chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms. Most places stay dry.
