Tuesday marks 2017s hottest afternoon so far

Prior to today, our highest temperature recorded in 2017 was the 85° high achieved on April 26.  But, at 2:56 pm here on May 16, we made it to 86°, giving us our warmest afternoon of 2017 thus far.

However, this stat may not stand on the books too long.  Wednesday afternoon’s high is forecast to be just a touch warmer.

Even so, no record is expected to be tied or set.  We’d have to get into the low 90s for that to happen and the incoming warmth from the southwest does not appear to be strong enough to get us to that level.
