Meteorologist David Sweet with the NWS emphasized the importance of staying hydrated and cool on days when it gets so hot — even if it’s only for a day or two.
“We're going to be experiencing a cooling trend [Tuesday] with temperatures about ten degrees cooler,” he said.
Sweet added that temperatures are expected to warm up again Friday, but that overall this week will be cooler than last.
