Ooof. It’s rough out there this morning. We dip down to about 75 at best, then make a run at the triple digit mark the next afternoon or two. A “pro” to this - it’ll be a somewhat dry heat. Heat index only tops out at about 103°. Yay! We won’t be able to rule out a stray shower or storm, especially south and east, but most of us will stay hot and dry for the last two days of summer. Tuesday looks similar, but only up until a certain point in the afternoon.

Still on track for our cold front! We’re ironing out the timing, but it looks like we could find a broken line of showers and a couple storms by or around the afternoon drive, lasting into the early evening. Coverage won’t be for all - about 50% - but those who do get some rain could manage another quick half inch or so as the front pushes through. Then, a healthy north breeze that will do its work overnight and kick us down into the low/mid 60s by Wednesday morning! Get ready, the next several mornings after look even cooler, and may even have you reaching for the jacket by Thursday! The cooldown is a little more modest in the afternoon, with sunshine warming us to near 90 all the way into the weekend.

Monday: Partly cloudy with a 10% chance for rain and storms. High: 98. Wind: S 5-10 mph, gusts to 15 mph.

Monday Night: Partly cloudy. Low: 76. Wind: SE 5-10 mph.

Tuesday: Partly cloudy with a 50% chance for rain and thunderstorms. High: 96. Wind: SW 5-15 mph.

Tuesday Night: Clearing and getting cooler. Low: 64. Wind: NE 10-15 mph.
