Drier and cooler air will filter in later today, allowing temperatures to drop into the 50s overnight! Over the next few days, temperatures will be below average, but very comfortable with low humidity.

(Highs in the upper 70s, lows 80s. Lows in the mid to upper 50s, low 60s.). Rain chances don’t return until late this weekend!
