As rain leaves, heat returns

Posted: Updated:

(WRCB) - With the rain ending, now we turn our attention to the warm weather settling in.

Our average highs this time of the year are in the low-60s.  That's mild enough.  This afternoon, on the back of a weak southwest wind, we will climb into the mid-to-upper-70s.  That is the lowest daytime high we will have for the next 6 or 7 days at least.

Tuesday through the weekend we will see highs climbing into the low 80s and coming uncomfortably close to setting some new records.

Here is a list of forecast highs next to record highs for that date through the rest of the week:

Monday: High 77 / Record 83
Tuesday: High 80 / Record 81
Wednesday: High 80 / Record 81
Thursday: High 81 / Record 82
Friday: High 80 / Record 83
