Look for a week marked by heat, humidity, and chances for showers and thunderstorms nearly every day.

Unfortunately, our return back to the work week is the next likeliest day for rain and should also come in two parts.  Look for a weak upper-level system to bring scattered showers into the region late tonight (after midnight) and into the morning rush Monday.  Showers should end by midday allowing for some sunshine to break through warming us into the 80s again, and that should be warm enough to combine with the upper-level system to spark scattered showers and heavier thunderstorms from the noon hour to 8PM.  Yep, you read that right we've got rain to slug through for both commutes but the heavier storms only affect the evening rush.

Model Forecasts for Monday Rain

Heat first advertised yesterday looks more likely the rest of the week as several more forecast runs have also come in line with hot temperatures through the next 7 days.  Look for at least lower to mid 90s after Monday with the hottest part of the forecast settling in by next weekend where some forecasts want to bring in nearly 100° heat!  We won't THAT far just yet, but signs indicate it's a possibility for sure.

Your Quick-Look Forecast

I hope you've had a great 4th of July Holiday Weekend!
