We will feel the heat for the start of the week as temperatures climb into the mid-to-upper 90s Monday and Tuesday afternoon under mostly sunny skies. It will still be hot Wednesday with highs in the lower 90s ahead of a cold front which is forecast to slowly move through Wednesday night into early Thursday. A  cool, Canadian air mass will move in behind the front keeping daytime high temperatures in the low 80s with nights dropping into the 50s Friday and Saturday nights.

A few t-storms are possible late in the day Wednesday as the cold front approaches. A slight chance of storms continues into Thursday as the front slowly makes it's way south. Sunshine, low humidity and mild temperatures will end the week and stick around through Saturday.
