Awesome Weather Ahead

**Love This Weather**
Cooler temperatures combined with lower humidity will make the next 4-5 days feel great. Morning lows will be down around 60° around sunrise with afternoon highs in the mid 80's. Much different than the 100° heat index readings we've seen. Enjoy the break as July is just around the corner and will bring very hot weather again.
