A big time cool down is in store for the area by mid next week.
Before the cool air arrives, we will see temperatures soar into the triple digits this weekend. Then, a strong cool front will move through the area Tuesday.
Behind the front temperatures will drop some twenty degrees, which will bring highs down into the lower 80s and morning lows into the upper 50s and lower 60s.
Near record lows will be possible by mid next week. The previous records were set in 1970. Last July also offered a bit of a cool down, but this could be cooler than what we experienced in 2013.
