This weekend we flipped the calendar over from September to October, but the weather is feeling like we’re smack dab in the middle of summer. After record highs in the low 90s this weekend, another record may be broken again Monday with highs in the upper 80s and low 90s. As dew points push into the 60s, it will again feel rather muggy, especially for the start of October. Above-normal temperatures will persist into early next week, but by Tuesday night, a front will move through the area, ushering in much cooler temperatures for the end of the week and next weekend.

There were isolated thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday mornings, but it looks like it will stay dry over the next 48 hours. Another chance for showers and thunderstorms arrives with the front Tuesday evening into Wednesday morning. Behind the front, temperatures will drop significantly, with lows in the 30s and highs only in the 50s for late week.
