A few scattered showers dotted the skies today, with a mix of sun and clouds for the state when it’s not raining. But the bigger story is the impending heat, which has been slowly building since Wednesday.
Highs today reach 80 in many places, but this pales in comparison to the next few days. Under dominant sun Sunday, and a southerly flow, expect temps to reach 90 inland, with highs staying in the 90s Monday and Tuesday. With this summer feel comes summer-like humidity, so take it easy outside!
