It will also be pretty windy, especially affecting the coast, making it cooler. Temperatures aren’t gong to drop much tonight and the heat will continue throughout the week. However it will be slightly cooler with temperatures in the 80’s.

There is a front moving into the area so there is a chance for showers later this evening that may stick around early tomorrow. It won’t be a complete wash out and temperatures will stay pretty high.
