Unusually warm temperatures are forecast Tuesday through Friday of this week as summer-like high pressure builds over the region.

* High temperatures 20 degrees above normal could exceed a few daily records. Peak heat is projected Wednesday and Thursday with valleys well into the 90s and mountain communities well into the 80s. Friday could have similar heat; however, more clouds and thunderstorms could limit how hot it gets.

More numerous storms are possible on Friday and Saturday. Take some time over the next few days to review heat and thunderstorm safety online from the National Weather Service.
