The weekend rain is quickly leaving the state for this morning, and just leaving a few wet streets for the early morning commute. Keep in mind that a high pressure system is quickly taking over our weather pattern, bringing the sunshine back very quickly.
Expect a high in the upper 70s and winds north at 5-14 mph.
Tonight the clear skies will allow the temps to drop rather rapidly, by as much at 30+ degrees. Winds will become light and begin to shift out of the south.
The most striking news may be what's happening in the Atlantic as RAFAEL is expected to become a hurricane, but not threatening any main land areas.
Tuesday the sunshine starts off the day and ends it as well. Expect highs to reach into the upper 70s to near 80 degree. And the winds are shifting directly out of the south.
So over the next few days we'll have a increase in moisture as well as heat. Significant rain chances kick back in by Thursday afternoon at 60%.
