The National Weather Service reported Medford will crack the 100-degree mark Tuesday. On Wednesday, the mercury is expected to climb to 103. Temperatures are expected to fall into the high 90s Thursday and Friday.

The warmup will be because of a high pressure front along the West Coast this week, meteorologists said.
