A good week to mow the lawn; just stay hydrated
There shouldn't be too many showers to mess up your lawns today, but hopefully your garden will be one of the lucky few to have a sip of water. Expect mostly sunny skies today and warm temperatures with a high in the lower 90's. Overnight, clear skies with lows in the lower 70s. Since it is summer, it is very warm and humid so it's difficult to completely rule out a sprinkle. However, rain showers are hard to come by today as an area of high pressure is dominating our pattern today and for the next several days.
Temperatures and the steam will slowly rise toward the weekend, where there is a slightly better chance for a sprinkle. Early next week looks like best chance for rain in the forecast, however we are just anticipating isolated showers at best.
The tropics are quiet and no development is expected over the next several days.
