The First Warning Storm Team is tracking dry conditions heading into your Monday.

Another mostly clear night on tap with calm winds. Patchy fog is likely in some areas, so take that into consideration if you’re heading out early Monday morning. Lows tonight in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

High pressure will continue to be in control heading into next week and we’ll see a warm-up with highs Monday in the mid to upper 70s, and with temperatures near 80 on Tuesday and Wednesday. Winds will pick up a bit on Tuesday, but still looking like a dry day.

Sunday night: Mostly clear with some patchy fog. Lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s. Winds: SW around 5.

Monday: Some patchy fog in the morning. Mostly sunny. Highs in the upper 70s, may see a few 80s. Winds: SW 5-10.
