Relief from the heat arrives

• Sep 6, 2018 at 6:00 AM

Cooler weather has arrived.

Some area schools cancelled classes Wednesday, due to extreme heat. It was yet another day in which the temperature reached at least 90.

That won’t happen today, however. The high will be in the mid 70s, while the low will be in the mid 60s.

And cooler weather will continue at least through Wednesday, with highs mostly in the 70s and lows mostly in the 60s during that stretch.

Today, the sun will rise at 7:02:46 a.m. and set at 7:54:16 p.m.

On Friday, the sun will rise at 7:03:46 a.m. and set at 7:52:35 p.m.
