High pressure continues to dominate the weather pattern of hot and humid air and afternoons and evenings with showers and thunderstorms. Our Pinpoint Weather Futurecast shows Monday afternoon once again with widely scattered storms.

As we have seen since last week, the greatest threat is from slow-moving cells with heavy rainfall causing localized flooding. Lightning and gust winds are possible as well. This pattern will continue through Wednesday with milder weather by the weekend.

Given that reckoning, fall is just a few weeks away.

Be safe and stay cool!
