The record high of 106 (set in 2013) for both today and tomorrow appears to be in danger of being tied or broken as highs soar today to some of the hottest levels we've seen all year. An Excessive Heat Warning remains in effect until Thursday at 9 p.m.
It's important to remember your hot-weather habits, and stay hydrated to avoid heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Call 911 and seek help if you feel any symptoms of heat related illness.
High pressure will remain over the region through the weekend, but will weaken enough to bring some modest cooling by Saturday & Sunday.
Daytime highs begin to decline modestly on Friday, but show steeper drops over the weekend. Still above our seasonal average, but better than the triple digits we've been dealing with.
