Hazy, hot, humid Thursday – temps will soar into the 90s

It's almost like we skipped right over May and went straight to mid-July! Temperatures soared into the 80s and 90s Wednesday with slowly rising humidity.  That humidity and the temperature will continue to climb Thursday before cooler temperatures late week.

Thursday’s record high is 90, set back in 1936, and it appears we could be breaking that with low to middle 90s inland and low 80s at the beaches. An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible in the evening but most locations will stay dry.

Friday will not be as hot with mostly sunny skies and highs in the 80s. There is another chance for an isolated shower/thunderstorm in the afternoon.

Spring-lovers, cooler temperatures return just in time for the weekend with highs near 70 degrees, lots of sun and low humidity.
