The record for the day Saturday is 93 degrees, set in 1996. We have a very good chance of breaking that record, with the temperature climbing as high as 98 degrees in some parts of the state on Saturday. The all-time record high for the month of May is 99 degrees.
Sunday will have more of the same with potentially record-breaking temperatures again. While it won't be quite as hot as Saturday, temperatures could still rise into the mid-90s.
We get some relief on Monday with temperatures returning to the 70s.
