A summer-like weekend… Highs returned to near 90 on Saturday with a mix of sun and clouds. We will see more of the same on Sunday with an added chance for a “pop-up” shower or thunderstorm. In typical summer fashion, watch for clouds to build and storms to develop during the afternoon hours. We will see more scattered showers and storms early next week as an area of low pressure slides along a stationary front stalled to our south. Expect more heat and humidity next week with highs in the low 90s through Wednesday. Temperatures will drop a bit for the end of the week but rain chances will increase.

Tonight: Partly Cloudy. Lows in the mid 70s. Winds: S 5-10

Tomorrow: Partly Cloudy, Isolated Showers/Storms(20%). Highs in the low 90s. Winds: N/E 5-10
