Waking up looking a LOT like we did on Saturday and Sunday, but less rain is coming our way this afternoon. As Ida weakens to a tropical depression by late Monday, the flow in the atmosphere between that feature and high pressure to the west will run out of the north. A sinking air mass means a very low (10%) chance for showers by afternoon and the potential that thermometers could reach a few degrees shy of triple digits.

High pressure will stay to our west through midweek. That could open the day for a few more afternoon clouds to get a touch taller and heavier, so we’ll up the coverage by a bit (up to 30%) through Wednesday. This will be our best shot at a cooldown for the foreseeable future - we look to dry right back out just in time for the holiday weekend. Whether it’s Friday (or Saturday, Gig ‘em) football, most plans are hot, but dry and obviously humid. The dry spell looks to last through Labor Day, and we will welcome back some showers by the middle to later part of next week.

Monday: Partly cloudy with an isolated chance for rain and thunderstorms. High: 98. Wind: N 5-10 mph.

Monday Night: Mostly clear. Low: 78. Wind: N 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: Partly cloudy with a 30% chance for rain and thunderstorms. High: 98. Wind: SW 5-10 mph.

Tuesday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 78. Wind: NNE 0-5 mph.
