Weekend Cool Down

Much cooler & less humid weather will set up over the area this weekend, keeping highs in the low/mid 70s and lows in the low/mid 50s.  Highs may struggle to get out of the 60s in our northwest counties.  This is more typical of mid-September or late May.

Normal high this time of year is 80°, normal low is 60°.   None of the forecast temps are near any records. 

This weekend will be quite the departure from the last two.  Last weekend (Aug 15-16) had highs of 88° on Saturday and 94° on Sunday.

The weekend before that (Aug 8-9) featured a 85° high Saturday and 94° Sunday.
