Although today will not be quite as beautiful as this weekend was, it will still be a pretty nice day as far as Mondays in late July go.

Expect just the chance of a passing shower or rumble of thunder up through about 1 pm and then skies will slowly clear from the northwest.

The clearing skies will bring the sunshine back to the state as well as temperatures in the lower 80’s by this afternoon.

The same clearing will also bring some less humid air our way once again overnight tonight.

The wonderfully dry and clean air will last all day on Tuesday before our next chance of a passing shower or thunderstorm comes along on Wednesday.

Following Wednesday’s thunder chance will come some pretty cool air for late July around here.

Afternoon temperatures on Thursday and Friday will struggle to reach the middle 70’s while overnight temperatures will slide into the upper 50’s (great sleeping weather!).

A gradual warming will get underway on Saturday and Sunday as we approach 80 degrees with only a passing shower or thunderstorm possible.

The long range forecast into early August is looking cooler than normal (normal high for that stretch is 82 degrees) and slightly drier than normal.

A nice break from the early summer heat is here to stay for at least the next two weeks!
