TEMPERATURES RISE: A long-awaited return to the 90s return Monday and Tuesday with stray thunderstorm chances both days. Partly cloudy skies continue with light west-southwesterly winds. The trend of 90s continues into Wednesday with muggy humidity levels throughout the first part of the week. If those stray thunderstorm chances do occur, the storms would be short-lived but could have the chance of being strong with heavy downpours.
