The week ahead weather wise

If you have been waiting for the right day to open your home windows, turn off the air conditioner, and save on the electric bill, well today is your day! Take advantage of the cooler weather today, because it won't last long. 

Temperatures will quickly rebound with highs in the lower 90s and lows in the lower 70s later in the week. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies with southerly winds.
