August got off to a sultry start on Sunday with a high of 92 degrees, but forecasters with the National Weather Service office in Sterling, Va., are predicting this week to be more seasonable.
About 80-to 85-degree temperatures are expected through Wednesday. Forecasters are calling for sunny skies today, but partly cloudy weather is slated for Tuesday and Wednesday.
This week's weather may seem cool after July's record-breaking temperatures.
After 23 days of 90-degree or more temperatures, Hagerstown experienced the hottest July ever, according to information provided on a Web site by Hagerstown weather observer Greg Keefer.
Only on three occasions have temperatures even come close to that mark, with 20 days over 90 recorded in 1934, 1955 and 1966, he said.
