This type of weather is brought to us by a sprawling area of high pressure drifting over the central U.S. It’s effect will be long-lasting with cooler than average conditions lasting through the rest of the week.
High temperatures this week will top out in the lower eighties. Morning lows will be in the fifties.
Another cool front may spark some showers and some thunderstorms by late Friday and on Saturday.
The upper-level winds look like they will change by next week to favor warmer weather. For late August, this means highs in the upper eighties.
