A look at the National Weather Service forecast for our area over the next several days makes it immediately clear: a series of orange suns shows it’s going to be hot.
The forecast calls for highs in the upper 90s through the end of the work week, with triple digits approaching over the weekend.
Sunny and hot conditions are expected at least through Monday, with lows dropping into the 60s. The temperatures are about 10 to 15 degrees higher than normal for this time of year, forecasters say.
Some relief is expected next week, when it is expected to be a few degrees cooler each day after Monday.
