EXTENDED FORECAST:
Next week starts with winds out of the east and southeast and that means temps  will still be only around 80 for Monday. The forecast Tuesday and Wednesday is dependent on a possible tropical development off the east coast of the U.S.  If a storm develops, that would tend to keep the moisture with it and keep us dry until Wednesday. If not, then we'll see a few showers/storms in spots Monday and Tuesday.
Monday: Partly cloudy and still comfortable. Isolated showers. Highs: Around 80
Tuesday: Partly sunny and warmer with a threat for PM showers and storms. Highs: Mid 80s.
Wednesday: Partly sunny and even warmer with a threat for PM showers and storms. Highs: Mid to upper 80s.
