Highs across the region Tuesday were anywhere from 10 to 20 degrees above average for this time of the year.
Looking ahead into Wednesday, the heat is sticking around and we will be on watch for more records to be broken. You can see many cities will be within a degree or two of their records.
Along with the heat, our air quality will be declining, especially Inland. Poor air quality is forecasted there. A Spare the Air day has been issued for Wednesday.
If you can, take public transit, carpool bike or walk to cut down on the pollutants in the air.
Not a fan of this hot spell of weather? Friday is your day. Take a look at how sharply temperatures will drop from Wednesday into Friday. Most cities will drop 15 to 20 degrees to round out the week. A little something for everybody!
