Feeling like August again….Get ready for August to make big a comeback this week.  As high pressure pushes offshore, the heat and humidity will be back in full force, and the chance for storms will be going up, too. On Monday, we’re expecting mostly sunny skies. High temperatures will climb into the upper 80s and lower 90s. Then, our attention will turn to several chances for showers and storms from Tuesday through Friday.  No day looks like a washout, but have your rain gear handy. Some of the rain could be heavy at times. High temperatures will be in the mid and upper 80s for majority of the work week.  But because of the humidity, it will feel hotter. A few showers and storms are possible next weekend as well.  Enjoy your week!

Tonight: Mostly Clear. Mild. Low temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s. Winds: S 5-10 mph.
