We have three more days of heat and humidity, and starting Monday we will see changes to our area. Early next week, the heat high will retreat to the west starting Sunday. This will allow a few isolated storms possible as early as Saturday and Sunday in southern areas, with a better rain chance associated with a cold front by Monday and Tuesday. This is likely going to give us cooler temperatures (possibly 10 degrees cooler than average) next week! Stay tuned for updates.
