Models show a few clouds filtering in Sunday afternoon into the evening.
Temperatures will rise to slightly above average Monday and stay dangerously hot through the week. Wednesday is shaping up to be the hottest day. Heat-related illnesses will be a top concern so limit outdoor activity and stay hydrated with cooling breaks.
