Cool July weather is on tap

A much calmer day is expected today after the blustery conditions experienced on Wednesday. There will be very pleasant temperatures for mid July today in the lower to mid 70s for highs under sunny skies and winds generally from the west around 10 to 20 mph by afternoon.

Overnight lows tonight will cool into the upper 30s to upper 40s with light winds. After today we will begin to warm up once again but it does not look to be quite as hot as those temperatures experienced a few weeks ago.
