Even though summer is just less than a month away, starting June 20th,
it's going to feel like summer this week. Hazy, hot, and humid weather the
entire week. Also, we will have chances for thunderstorms, especially towards
the end of the week.

Monday night could be the warmest night we've had this spring. Lows will only
reach the lower to mid 60s. It'll be muggy too with dew points in the lower
60s. Staying dry with partly clear skies.

Tuesday could be the hottest day this entire spring 2020. Highs are expected
to climb to near 90 degrees with partly cloudy skies and plenty of sunshine.
We could even break the record high, which is not too far off at 90 degrees
set back in 2010. Not to mention, it will also be humid and hazy. Dew points
will be in the mid 60s. We will have the chance for an isolated thunderstorm
in the afternoon.

Tuesday night we could break another record. The record warmest low, which is
at 61 degrees set back in 1991. Our forecast low temperature is expected to
be 64 degrees.

Wednesday looks like a carbon copy of Tuesday. Partly cloudy skies with plenty
of sunshine. Hot and humid with highs in the upper 80s and dew points in the
mid 60s. The one difference is that it doesn't look like we will break a
record during the day. The record highs is 92 degrees set back in 1939.

Wednesday night, lows are forecast to be in the mid 60s again and we could
break the record warmest low. The record is at 64 degrees set in 1991.

Looking towards the end of the week, we have a better chance to see
thunderstorms. Scattered thunderstorms on Thursday, then more widespread rain
on Friday as a cold front moves through. This front will bring in cooler and
drier air for the weekend.

Plenty of sunshine on Saturday and Sunday with highs near 70 degrees each day.
