More heat and more music, as well

THE WEATHER should be sunny most of the week in the Garden Grove-Huntington Beach-Stanton Westminster area.

We know, it’s the beginning of the week and maybe you’re still too unfocused to think about the week ahead, but –as the song goes – “don’t stop thinking about tomorrow.”  We did it for you if you’re from the area of Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Stanton and Westminster.

WEATHER:  It’s been a mild summer so far, but things will heat up a bit this week, with humidity on the increase this week. Temps will rise from the low 80s on Monday to 90 on Wednesday, then fall back by the weekend in the Garden Grove-Stanton area. For Westminster-Huntington Beach, temps will be cooler, especially the closer you get to the shore.
