Nice today but heat and humidity returns… Today will likely be the nicest day of the week. Expect plenty of sunshine today as high pressure moves in. Temperatures will return to near 80 this afternoon, about 5 degrees below normal. Dew point values will stay in the mid 50s, making it feel very refreshing for this time of year.
