Extended outlook is quite awesome for August. High pressure keeps us dry for most of this week, we warm up a few degrees each day and start getting muggier towards the weekend. Late week the chance of afternoon showers / t-storms comes back into the forecast. We’ll see a string of much warmer than normal weather as we head into the 90s for the weekend. Normal: 84/68
