First things first, it's a comfortably cool morning in the 50s. Under sunny skies, we should be in the mid-70s by noon and near 80 degrees by midafternoon.

The temperature jumps into the mid-80s by Wednesday and upper 80s to near 90 by Thursday and Friday.

Little if any rain expected unless we see a few pop up storms in the heat and humidity over the weekend.
