Continued warm and slightly-humid with little if any rain (more of the same.)

Remember what this weekend’s weather was like?  Very warm but not hot, somewhat humid but not terrible, sunshine mixed with clouds and a few occasional specks on the radar? Well, that’s the past, present and future of weather around here, as a very consistent weather pattern will continue this trend for at least the next few days. We will be just a little cooler compared to this weekend with highs 80-85 generally expected, and dew points in the upper 50s to lower 60s means it will only be a little humid out there too.  Keep watering your lawns if you don’t want it brown, as there’s barely any rain in this forecast too. Large, slow-moving high pressure systems are rarely cursed at, but luscious green lawns have gone the way of the dodo bird around here!
