Temperatures will gradually fall Monday evening into the 60s with drier air in place for much of this week giving us a break from the humidity.
High temperatures for Tuesday will only reach the low 80s. Tuesday night into Wednesday morning is when we will feel our first official taste of fall-like weather for the valley. Take out those sweaters, because, low temperatures will drop into the middle to low 50’s for Wednesday morning.
With lower humidity, lots of sunshine with highs in the 80s will be in store for the rest of this week.
