Through the evening hours on Monday it’ll be nice and pleasant as well as we stay in the 80s and a nice sunset once again just before 9 p.m.

LOOKING AHEAD

We wake up on Tuesday with the sunshine again, but you’ll notice a slight increase in humidity and that sets the stage for later in the week with heat and humidity make it feel well over 100 for the afternoon.

Limited rain chances at best through the extended forecast period with only an isolated rain chance Thursday, Friday and into the weekend.
