The wind whipped through the trees and the cool air sent goosebumps down some Lodians' arms Tuesday morning.

After weeks of heat, sun and triple-digit temperatures, it was a mere 58 degrees outside around 9 a.m. There was talk of rain, and many could be seen with a jacket or sweater on.

In the middle of July, it looked like June gloom on Tuesday.

What happened to the summer weather?

According to Ken Clark, a senior meteorologist for AccuWeather.com, a private forecasting service, a cool front has settled along the Northern California and Oregon coasts. This front has sent cool, marine-like air southward into areas including Lodi.

The cool air, particularly the chilly night temperatures, are expected to last through today, he said.

While temperatures will heat back up by the weekend, the somewhat extreme heat from the past few weeks will not be coming back, he added.

Going into the weekend, the highest temperatures will hit right around the low 90s, typical weather for this time of year, Clark said.

Night temperatures will drop roughly 30 degrees, however. They will range between the mid-50s to the low 60s.

"This kind of weather does happen this time of year," Clark said of the cooldown.

Once warmer temperatures come back, however, this type of cool down is not expected again for weeks.

Heading into August, it is possible that temperatures will spike again before the autumn season begins and the weather cools off drastically.
