Helping a great deal is the overnight minimum, which was a balmy 75ºF. That means we need a high of 93ºF to at least tie the record (assuming it is based on the average temperature to the nearest tenth of a degree). The NWS forecast calls for a high of 98ºF.
Of course, this all assumes that the unofficial numbers I'm using are in line with those at the NWS. Let's hope they are. I like seeing records happen.
