Forecast updated by Meteorologist AJ Colby

A quiet, summer night with lows near 70°.  You may not want to open your windows and keep the AC going…humidity on the rise.

It gets hot again Monday as highs top out in the upper 80s! It will feel rather sultry. Remember, it’s the big solar eclipse day!

Then get ready for a big cool down later next week, very comfortable with pleasant temps.

Thus far, our summer has stayed close to normal temperature wise, except for the hot days in mid-June. Thursday’s 10° departure was the warmest since then, some 60 days ago!
