Dry air aloft kept most of us rain-free Monday, although a few neighborhoods were dealt a pretty good downpour and a lightning strike. The isolated activity ended early and we’ll just see a mainly clear and starry sky overnight
Although we’ll have a few more clouds toward the east coast, it should be a decent night to view the Falcon 9 launch between 1:18-3:18 a.m.
Our pattern doesn’t change up much the next few days, although we’ll bring rain chances up a touch to 30 percent through Thursday.
Plenty of sun will help boost temps to and slightly above seasonable levels in the lower to possibly even a few mid-90s. When factoring in low-level moisture, our feel-like temp will hover around 100

By Friday, some kids will be returning to school with a more typical 40 percent afternoon storm chance with the sea breezes, and this pattern sticks around over the weekend.
We may even bump storm chances to 50 percent on Sunday. Highs stay right where they should be in the extended period. For the remaining kids set to hit the books next Monday, our forecast is calling for a 40 percent rain chance and highs in the lower 90s.
A small east trade swell remains in place Tuesday, with poor to fair surfing conditions and wave heights around one to two feet.
Sea surface temps in the upper 70s to lower 80s will be a comfortable relief from the heat along the east coast.
A moderate rip current threat is in place, so make sure you’re swimming close to a lifeguard stand. The UV is still extreme, which means under 10 minutes for a decent sunburn.
In the tropics, an area of low pressure in the northern Atlantic isn’t anywhere near land and will not impact the U.S.
