We've still got a shot at scattered showers and thunderstorms Monday evening. We can't totally rule out an isolated strong thunderstorm but the threat is very low. After midnight, all rain will be over and skies will begin to clear. Some patchy fog will form, especially in areas that received rain Monday afternoon. We'll start Tuesday in the middle 60s.

Tuesday should end up being a rather nice day. After the fog thins, we'll see a decent amount of sun early. Clouds will bubble up as the afternoon chugs along. Most of us will stay dry but just a few showers may get going over the mountains. Meanwhile, valleys will be comfortably warm and dry with highs getting close to 80°. Tuesday night, we stay quiet, dry and clear with lows in the low 60s. Ma Nature cranks the heat up on us Wednesday. Many will make a solid run at 90° under a mostly sunny sky. Humidity will start to creep up but it won't be oppressive; dewpoints will hover around 60°.

The middle & end of the week is when we start to see changes. A train of upper level disturbances will likely scoot across the northeast starting Thursday and last through the weekend. They'll give us a daily shot at showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms. I wouldn't call these plan canceling but with the non-zero lightning chance, I'd keep an ear open while outside. That said, it should be standard operating summertime procedure to be weather aware, especially on the water and in the high country. There's still an outside chance that a ridge of high pressure sets up shop and shoves these disturbances to our south. If that happens we'll end up mainly dry. For now, that's the less likely scenario. Keep your fingers crossed if you're sick of rain and storms. Meanwhile, highs will close in on the low 80s with overnight lows around 60°.

Have a great week!
