Good morning. This week is bringing some relief from the brutal heat we’ve experienced this summer, though it’s not exactly cool.

The National Weather Service calls for a high of 86 today with sunny skies. The overnight low will be around 58 degrees.

Wednesday should be pretty similar, with a 20 percent chance of rain in the afternoon, and Thursday could be even cooler, with a high in the mid-70s.
