Cooler-than-average temperatures will likely continue through the week, the National Weather Service said, as will the dryness the region has seen for the last few days.
“It’s kind of tough to break with a seasonal change, so we’ll probably keep going with [the cool temperatures],” said National Weather Service meteorologist Bill Simpson. The week will “run 2 to 3 degrees cooler than normal,” he said.
Today through Friday is expected to be sunny, with temperatures in the mid- to high 70s. The weekend will be partly sunny, with temperatures in the low 70s, the weather service said.
Fortunately, Simpson said, the nice August weather pattern does not provide any indication of unusually cold or harsh winter weather to come. “There’s no way of directly tying in, this leads to that,” he said.
