1:56 am
going to go pretty much back to normal. it's only compared to what we had last week, with that heatwave and those temperatures in the high 20s for some of us. this week it's going to change a little bit more, from sunny spells to darker clouds. it will remain very fresh. in fact, the indication is as we head through the week, the temperatures will keep on dropping. it could turn really chilly by the weekend, and the nights will be nippy as well. now, there's a lot of cloud out there in the atlantic which is ready to come our way, lots of showers, too. this is cool air, it's streaming in, and it's here to stay for the next few days. so, for the early hours of tuesday morning, a lot of cloud across southern areas. that actually is going to stop the temperatures from dropping too low.
