skies. Mostly clear Monday night, but
not as comfortable. Lows are slated in
the upper 60s.


Tuesday is the hottest day of the

upper 90s! Records will be threatened
all across the NEWS7 viewing area.
Danville may see a high near 101
degrees, which would break the old
record of 99 set in 1991. Skies will be
mostly sunny Tuesday with just a few
fair weather clouds.


Wednesday will also be hot with highs
near the low and mid 90s. Keep in mind
the humidity will be rather high.
There's a 30% chance of showers and
storms Wednesday, otherwise partly
sunny.


Unsettled weather, but cooler
temperatures, are expected Thursday and
Friday.


MONDAY: Sunny and warm. High: 91


Have a great week! Meteorologist Leo
