This coming Saturday marks the official start of Summer 2020, and the temperature is set to rise as the forecast through the rest of the week is expected to remain in the mid 80s with slight chances of rain heading into a weekend in the low 90s.

So get out the sunscreen, make sure the fans are running and remember to take precautions against both the heat and COVID-19 when out enjoying the season.
