First Alert Forecast: Hotter Monday with a small t-storm chance

Monday will be a bit warmer and more humid with a light return flow out of the southeast.  We could see a small window for isolated showers and thunderstorms late in the day ahead of the next front.   High temperatures will fall back into the upper 70's behind the front Tuesday.   

MONDAY FORECAST: Ahead of a weak cool front we'll see partly sunny skies and highs rising into the mid to upper 80's.  You'll notice a bit more humidity.  Look for a 20% chance of a spotty shower or thunderstorm.  Monday evening maybe the best chance of an isolated shower or t-storm (30%).  Monday night's low will be in the mid 60's. 

EXTENDED FORECAST: For the most part it will be sunny to mostly sunny and quiet all week.  We will include a slim light shower shot (10%) for Tuesday.  Afternoon highs will warm from the upper 70's to the mid 80's later in the week.  Overnight lows will moderate from the low 60's early in the week to the mid 60's later in the week. 

TROPICAL AREAS OF INTEREST:

Hurricane Ingrid, in the southern Gulf of Mexico as of Sunday afternoon, will likely bring: damaging wind gusts, excessive rain and flooding to northeastern Mexico for the weekend and next week.

- Humberto is now a post-tropical cyclone and it will continue it's relatively harmless track through the open waters of the Atlantic Ocean through the weekend and next week.  Humberto could regain tropical characteristics later this week.
