The end of the weekend was nice and pleasant -- plenty of sunshine and low humidity to boot. It's starting to feel like fall... a time of year when things start to calm down. Severe weather can still happen and it can still get hot, but it does stat to happen less often. This week will be a good example of that.

High pressure will be in control for much of the week:

Monday is going to be nice and sunny and comfortable. Temperatures will be a bit warmer than Sunday:

Humidity will be on the low side:
