Record Low Temperatures Set Both Saturday and Sunday Morning

High pressure, calm or light winds, and a clear to partly cloudy sky this weekend brought cool and dry weather to the area. Many new low temperature records were established both Saturday morning, July 27th, and Sunday morning, July 28th. As the high difts off to the east tonight, winds will come around to the southeast or south, and usher milder air back into the region by Monday. The following is a table of observed minimum temperatures and previous record values for the 27th and 28th of July. Readings in red indicate broken records, while those in blue indicate tied records.
