RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - We made it to 97 degrees Friday afternoon, which broke the record of 96 degrees from 1934.
We will likely break the record high again on Saturday when the record high is 93 degrees and our forecast is for 96.
After a long, comfortable (at times chilly) spring, this heat will be a shock to the system.
Make sure you plan ahead to keep you are your family cool and hydrated.
