Cooler temps should last through the weekend

For the first time this year, temperatures soared past triple
digits this week, sending parents, workers and kids scrambling for
shade and water. They took a dip today, and that trend should
continue through the weekend, according to the local forecast.
For the first time this year, temperatures soared past triple digits this week, sending parents, workers and kids scrambling for shade and water.

Younger kids and their parents enjoyed the wonders of water while others tried to bear the heat while setting up booths for the Wednesday Farmer’s Market. But a common theme from everyone was that it could have been worse.

“The heat just stops everything,” said Richard Bradley at the Downtown Hollister Farmer’s Market. “At least there is this nice cool breeze.”

For Tammy Cadile and her 2-year-old son Kaden, Tuesday’s 109-degree temperature was the perfect time to visit the “water whale” at Valley View Park for the first time.

“I just couldn’t get him away from it yesterday so I needed to come back today,” she said Wednesday. “He just loves the water.”

Kaden, holding a pair of plastic dinosaurs in each hand, ran through the sprouting water as his mom, Tammy, watched from the edges of the cement. On Tuesday, Cadile joined in with her son running though the water but Wednesday she was letting her kid have all the fun.

“Yesterday, we came here to cool off but today it’s a little cooler,”she said.

But not many enjoyed the water Wednesday. Before 12:30 p.m. Wednesday only three kids and two parents enjoyed the park’s wonders. On Tuesday, more than 20 kids roamed the park, Joy Urtnowski said.

Temperatures already had begun to cool off for the week. Today, that trend took a more drastic trend, as highs were expected to reach only 84 degrees, while dipping to a high of a forecast for 71 degrees Friday. Residents in Hollister can expect mild temperatures for the weekend, with a high of 65 expected Saturday and Sunday.
