NEXT WEEK

High pressure building in behind the departing front provides a welcome break from the heat and humidity. Temperatures return to more seasonable averages in the lower 80s, and we finally scour out the humidity. Clouds are around much of the day Monday with drier, more comfortable air, spilling in during the afternoon.   Skies give way to more sunshine Tuesday and highs in many locations dip into the 70s! We begin the day with lows returning to the 50s and 60s for a few mornings.  High pressure provides another fantastic day Wednesday with highs in the lower 80s.
