Afternoon temperatures will continue to soar into the 90s for the next several days, and the triple digits look to be more obtainable on Thursday than previously thought. As of Tuesday, the Raleigh-Durham Airport has hit a high of 90 or higher 16 days this month. Compare that to 13 days of 90 degree days in June of last year, 8 days in June 2006, 12 days in June 2005, and 9 days in June 2004.
Thursday should be the hottest day of the week with highs in the upper 90s to near 100. The record high for Thursday stands at 102 set in 1952.
