After a record warm June, and a record wet July, most are hoping for a more 'normal' August. And that's exactly what we'll get to start.

August Starts Comfortably

High temperatures all this week will be close to average for this time of year, in the upper 70s to low 80s.

Humidity will be comfortable as well. It won't be as refreshing and fall-like as this past weekend, but it will certainly not be oppressive either.

Overnight temperatures each night will be in the upper 50s to middle 60s.

Still Some Rain Chances

There may be a spot shower on Monday, especially during the morning, but otherwise expect a mixture of sun and clouds during the day.

Tuesday will also feature a mixture of sun and clouds.

Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will be a bit more unsettled. These will not be washout days by any means, but a feed of moisture from the south will bring the renewed risk of some scattered showers.

Perseid Meteor Shower

As we get into August, it's good to keep an eye out for meteors, more commonly known as "shooting stars."

The Perseid Meteor Shower stretches from mid-July to mid-August, with peak activity roughly August 10-13 as we are near the new moon phase.

The best chance of seeing one is from midnight to dawn in a dark place away from any light pollution.
