More Heat; Break Comes Around Labor Day

NOTE: Posts will be sporadic through Labor Day as I'm taking a few days off. Latest, local forecast is always available just to the right of these blog posts near the top of the blog!

(who is ready for this?)

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!! 

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!!
