Mainly dry to start the week, but not so much for the second half

0

We’ve seen a mix of sun and clouds today with temperatures in the mid 80s. Dew points have dropped slightly making it feel a little less sticky this afternoon. A few pop up showers/storms may develop with the heating of the day, so they cannot be ruled out through the remainder of the afternoon and evening hours. They will be spotty in natures, but some could produce heavy rain, gusty wind, and lightning. We’ll see mostly clear to partly cloudy skies tonight with patchy fog developing and temperatures in the mid 60s. Last night was the peak of the Perseid meteor shower, but you will still be able to catch some through August 24. Look to the NNE away from lights. High pressure will continue to sit over the region keeping the viewing area mainly dry today and tomorrow with slightly less muggy air in place. Temperatures will warm into the mid to upper 80s Tuesday with mostly sunny skies. By Wednesday, a few more showers and storms look to build back in with high temperatures staying in the mid 80s with dew points on the rise once again. Shower and storm activity will pick up Thursday and Friday, lingering into the weekend. Temperatures Thursday through the weekend will settle in the low to mid 80s.
