(who is ready for this?)
WELCOME TO SEPTEMBER:
We've turned over a new month and left a hot/dry August behind. It was the 5th driest August since records have been kept. We discussed that in yesterday's post. Temperatures average only about a 1/2 degree higher than normal but seemed hotter due to having no rain! We are all looking forward to temperatures cooling down and I can confirm we'll see highs running 10° plus cooler next week after Labor Day!!
HEATWAVE CONTINUES THROUGH WEEKEND:
We will be sunny and very hot through Saturday and then change will take place. We'll say 92° today, 94° Friday, and 93° Sunday. A slight rain chance on Sunday, high 89° and then with frontal passage temps will only be 81° Monday, and in the 70's on Tuesday and Wednesday!!
