Last Week (5/14– 5/20): Temperatures were at or above normal everyday last week. Weather Underground did not record a high of 90 or higher, but we reached it twice on our thermometers here at the gardens.
This Week (5/21– 5/27): Temperatures will a bit below normal at the start of the week as a cool front passes by early on the weekend. This is very late in the season for a cool front, but most welcome – especially if it brings some rain. Look for upper 80s to near 90 by the end of the week.
