Over the next few days, the weather is going to be so warm and sunny that you’ll need SPF 2 million.

“We have a high-pressure system sitting on top of us bringing in sun and higher than normal temperatures,” said National Weather Service meteorologist Deb Elliott. “The high temperature for Monday will be in the upper 80s to 90 degree range. It will be more of the same on Tuesday but slightly warmer.”

The predicted lows for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights will be around 70 degrees.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to slide into the metro area on Wednesday afternoon, which will bring temperatures down into the lower 80s on Thursday.

“Wednesday will be humid, but the humidity drops off on Thursday,” Elliott said.

According to NWS records for the metro area, the average high and low temperatures for July 27 are 83 and 64 degrees respectively. The record high for this date is 100 degrees set in 1955 while the record low of 48 was established in 1971.
