Overall quiet pattern continues
Tonight and Tomorrow: Any showers and storms that have developed this evening will begin to diminish once the sun goes down. Tonight, lows will drop to around 71 under mostly clear skies. Tomorrow, expect plenty of sunshine with highs around 93.
Looking Ahead: The moisture and humidity has returned, with dew point temperatures back in the 60s and 70s. This has brought a return of the stickiness in the air. High temperatures will warm to the low to mid 90s as we head into next week. A ridge of high pressure will likely remain over the southeast through much of next week, keeping our weather pattern mostly dry. A stray afternoon shower or storm can't be entirely ruled out each day, which is noted by the WPC graphic below - most locations may only see a tenth of an inch of rain over the next seven days.
With the nice weather sticking around and many people getting outside to enjoy, it's good to remember some sun and heat safety tips -
Sun and Heat Safety: Some friendly reminders for your summer of fun events—sunburn can occur in less than 15 minutes with the extreme U.V. Index typical of this time of year. In addition to that, heat exhaustion and heat stroke can set in just as quickly. Seek medical attention if you or somebody you know is affected. While we all enjoy a list of cool beverages, be sure water is at least a part of that list! Finally, look before you lock. DO NOT leave people or pets in an unattended car.
