Highs will get near 88 degrees Monday with a mixture of sun and clouds throughout the day. It’ll likely feel closer to the mid-90s with that humidity sticking around. Downpours and storms look pretty isolated Monday afternoon and evening.

LOOKING AHEAD

We’ll go back to a 40% coverage in rain and storms Tuesday afternoon and evening with highs remaining in the upper 80s.

Our best coverage in rain and storms comes Wednesday with about an 80% coverage. Those downpours and storms linger into the overnight hours and early Thursday morning but after that, we look to get on a sunny, dry, and cooler trend.

Later in your First Alert 8-day planner, we are tracking temperatures in the low to mid-80s, sunshine, and low humidity!
