NORFOLK-  High pressure off the southeast coast means high temperatures for Hampton Roads for the next two days.

While temperatures in the 90's are not all that uncommon in July and August around here, temperatures in the upper 90's can be a shock to the system.

13News Now meteorologist Evan Stewart says "When you factor in the humidity, the heat index will be around 100 degrees. The good news is there will be a nice southwest breeze that will help keep you cool in the shade."

Highs Wednesday are once again expect to be in the mid 90's. Evan says we will likely see a few showers and thunderstorms pop up in the afternoon.

Temperatures will return to the 80's by Thursday.
