The summer is certainly not over yet! As we get ready for the last few days of August, the heat and humidity are baking portions of the United States as the hot weather moves across the nation.

What is yet to come for New York State? The temperatures are going to feel like fall BRIEFLY this week as we dip back to the 50 and 60 degree range.

But just like most of the weather this summer, another change is just behind that cooler air.
