The good news is…we’ll see calmer conditions starting out the new week. A slight chance for isolated storms are possible Monday afternoon and an even smaller chance for Tuesday afternoon as a few weak disturbances roll through. The end of July is typically the warmest time of the year and I’m just not seeing anything that resembles "hot" weather! As a matter of fact, we’ve only hit 90 degrees once this year (July 15th)!
The extended outlook shows temperatures in the low to mid 80s for the remainder of the week.
