The weekend ushered in cooler weather. There is a 30% chance of precipitation today and a 60% chance of showers tomorrow.

Welcome weather for those who needed a break from the heat.

However, it won’t be a long break as forecasts predict a rise in temperatures by the end of next week.

You won’t hear me complain about having the chance to cool off between hot spells.
