Tuesday was the hottest day of the year and, oh boy, Wednesday is going to be even hotter

Riverside County may be opening more businesses up these days, but Mother Nature is doing all she can to try to make you stay in with the air conditioning cranked.

Tuesday saw a high temp of 111 degrees, which was the hottest temperature recorded so far this year:

And while that’s pretty hot, Wednesday looks like it will be even hotter:

Palm Springs and Thermal are looking at a forecasted high of 112 degrees, which is very hot, so you can go ahead and cancel that hike you had planned for 2 pm.

Thursday will “cool” a few degrees and things will go back down to the low 100s by the weekend, before dipping under triple digits next week.
