Temperatures are expected to approach 90 degrees in the city today.

In a year that has already set a number of all-time high temperatures, the city is again bracing for record heat today, as temperatures will approach 90 degrees.

Today’s forecasted high of 88, is more than 25 degrees higher than the average high time of year; last year’s high temperature was 55.

The highest temperature of the year is also the highest resident have dealt with since August of last year.

The record high for this date was set ten years ago, when temperatures hit 92 on the thermometer.

Warm temperatures and sunny skies are sure to send many residents outside today, but with the high heat comes high pollen counts. Pollen.com has the pollen level at 11.8 out of a possible 12 today.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has also issued a warning for an increased risk of brush fires for the city due to the combination of dry conditions, heat and wind.

The temperature is forecasted to drop to 78 tomorrow, with highs later in the week more in line with seasonal temperatures.
