Monday was a near perfect day. We started with a few low clouds much like this morning, but as the day progressed sun took over and it became a beautiful day after a weekend of storms. Tuesday will be a carbon copy, with temps in the mid and upper 80’s. Chances for rain enter the forecast Thursday night with clearing back in time for the upcoming Labor Day weekend.
