So have you been enjoying temperatures in the 80s, with cool breezes at night? Could fall be on the way? This weekend will prove summer is still with us as the high temperature for Saturday will reach 100 degrees...again. The good news is the temperatures will drop, but only back in the 90s, with no real break in sight. For this week the temperatures will slowly get warmer, before reaching the century mark.
