Today & Tonight: Today, expect another dry day with lower humidity. Highs will top out in the middle 90's but low humidity will make the feels like temperatures the same as the actual temperatures. There could a couple more clouds but the dry air will keep any of those from becoming showers. Tonight, lows expected to be in the low 70s under mostly clear skies.

Up Next: Tuesday starts the return of the humidity. It will not be extreme yet, but it will be the first day it will start to feel slightly muggy. There is also the outside shot at a shower or two but the vast majority will stay dry. Rain chances will start to really ramp up Wednesday through Friday as moisture surges into the area. Rain coverage is held at 20% for Wednesday and Thursday, but are bumped up to 30% for Friday as that looks to be the wettest day.
