Tim Chuey Weather:

We’ll still have plenty of sunshine this week, but it will be warm instead of hot.

High: 85
Low: 52
Forecast: warm with clouds

An upper level trough of low pressure will slide closer to us bringing some clouds and cooler temperatures. The high pressure ridge that gave us the sunny and hot weather has a little to the east allowing the trough to move in behind it. This week will be much more comfortable with high temperatures near or just a bit above average (from 80-85).
