All the official recording stations in the area set all-time record highs today with the ridge firmly in place across the region. This hot weather will be sticking around and the return of the moisture also. The return of moisture also means the return of isolated thunderstorms mainly in the higher elevations. Remember to take breaks and avoid the outdoors if possible.
