Hoping for a break from the heat? You might have to wait a few more days.

Temperatures will remain above average in Miami on Tuesday after record-breaking heat over Memorial Day weekend, according to the National Weather Service. Miami is looking at a high of 91 degrees, which is two degrees higher than normal, said meteorologist Andrew Hagen. The low of 80 degrees this morning was five degrees higher than usual.

And it will feel even steamier.

“Like the 100s when you factor in the humidity,” CBS4 meteorologist Lissette Gonzalez said.

On Sunday, Miami broke a record with a high of 98.

Relief could come later in the week with rain pushing the temperature down, Hagen said.

“Today we’re still expecting it to be a little bit warmer than normal, but as the week goes on it’s expected to get a little bit rainier especially by Thursday,” Hagen said. “That may keep temperatures around average by later in the week.”

There’s a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2 p.m. Tuesday with afternoon showers possible on Wednesday as well. Thursday is expected to be partly sunny with showers and a high of 88 degrees.

Weekend highs will hover around the mid- to high-80s with a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, according to the National Weather Service.
