It won't be quite as hot in Modesto today

After heating up Modesto and the Central Valley on Monday, Mother Nature is taking it a little easier on us today.

With a Northwest breeze blowing, the forecasters expect a high temperature in Modesto of 88 degrees. That's down quite a few notches from the high of 95 degrees recorded downtown on Monday by the Modesto Irrigation District.

Forecasters expect temperatures to moderate even more Wednesday, with a high of 83, and to stay in the mid-80s through the remainder of the work week.
