We all know the drill these days. It's really familiar. Keep the umbrellas close by, as our forecast is calling for another summer day that will definitely include heat, humidity, and rain. We're looking at a sun/cloud mix early. Cloud cover will increase throughout the day, with a 60 percent to 70 percent coverage of showers/storms and a high temperature in the lower 90s.  

Later tonight, a few lingering showers may pop up on FIRST ALERT Doppler radar and low will be in the mid-70s. Tuesday, it's "rinse and repeat" with the same basic forecast. It will be hot/humid, with a 60 percent coverage of showers and storms and a high of 91. We're expecting an August "cold front" to push through our viewing area late Tuesday/Wednesday morning.

The front will pull in drier air, which will help to bring about cooler morning lows and less humid conditions, for at least a few days. However, the break from the "summer muggies" won't last long. Humidity and rain chances return to the forecast by the end of the week into the weekend.
