Our Monday is off to a great and hot start. There has been lots of sunshine with not much rain. That has helped the temperatures get off to a fast start. Later this afternoon, the temperature should be in the lower to mid 90s. There is a cold front that will remain to our north today and will strike a few showers to the north of us.
