It may feel like fall, but summer’s going to be back with a vengeance by the beginning of next week. Today expect the high to hit 81 degrees under sunny skies. It’s going to be a bit breezy in the afternoon. Contrast that with next Tuesday’s forecast, which is calling for a high of 100 degrees, and you can see what I’m talking about. If it hits, it will be the third 100-degree day we’ve had in 2010.
