MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Temperatures are going to skyrocket into the 90s on Wednesday and will stay high through next week. Temperatures have mostly stayed in the 80s with only two days in the 90s so far this August.

Our average high this time of year is 92 degrees, so we will be closer to climatology this week. However, it will be feeling more humid over the next few days.

With the higher humidity, the heat index will be between 100 and 103 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday. Please try to limit your time outside and stay hydrated.
