Although low to mid 90′s are not uncommon in the middle of the summer, it is a bit unusual to have high heat this early in the year. That’s why Wednesday is a First Alert Weather Day. Be sure to find ways to stay cool and hydrated Wednesday and Thursday, especially if you are someone who works outdoors or have plans to be outside for a prolonged period of time.

The warmest day so far in 2020 at RIC was recorded back in March where temperatures climbed into the mid 80′s.

The warmer than average temperatures show no signs of going anywhere anytime soon either. The Climate Prediction Center keeps above average temperatures in the forecast over most of the U.S. as a heat dome builds for at least the next 6 to 10 days.

Above average temperatures likely continue in the 6 to 10 day period right into the middle part of June.
