Scattered Showers and Warmer

Your Monday is expected to have more humidity and higher temperatures than on Sunday. Skies will remain partly cloudy but we transition to more of a southerly flow and that will flip our weather to more traditional summer-like conditions this week.

We started this morning at 61.8° as of 6:15 am. At 7:15 am, we've already risen to 69.3°. Today's high is expected to top out around 90° with a 20% chance of an isolated thunderstorm. Winds will be south southeast around 5 mph.
