A much more quiet weather pattern will settle in for the early part of the week as the old frontal boundary has fizzled and drier air has moved in aloft. A few showers are dotting the coastline early this morning, but those should dissipate shortly after sunrise.
A fairly normal pattern will push in today through Tuesday with hot and humid conditions and a few widely scattered midday and afternoon storms. Highs will be in the 90s with the heat index near 100. A ridge of high pressure aloft will keep the rain coverage at about 20%. There will be a weakness developing in the upper level ridge on Wednesday and Thursday allowing for slightly more coverage of scattered afternoon storms. Rain chances Wednesday through Friday will run 30-40%.
Typical summer weather will stick around for the weekend. Highs in the low 90s with slight rain chances each afternoon.
