We'll Take It
Overall it's been on the dry side so far this month and July is climatologically the wettest month of the year (just above March and August). Of course there's plenty of room to grow and we'll make a dent the next couple of days. Today and Tuesday have pretty good coverage of showers and storms ahead of an incoming front that passes through Tuesday night. Today is likely a little wetter than tomorrow. Behind the front the second half of the work week is mostly dry and quite refreshing with considerably lower humidity levels.

Hi: 73 Lo: 60
Partly cloudy; A late-day or nighttime shower or thundershower
Saturday - More clouds; Scattered afternoon showers & thundershowers; High in the mid 70s; Low in the lower 60s
Sunday - Partly cloudy; Widely scattered PM showers and thundershowers; High in the mid 70s; Low in the lower 60s
The combination of a rather soupy airmass and an approaching cold front help to generate scattered showers and storms the next two days. The front moves through Tuesday night replacing the muggy air with drier, modified continental air courtesy of high pressure originating from Canada. Wednesday through Friday are rather stellar with lots of sunshine and noticeably cooler mornings.
The aforementioned front doesn't entirely fade off the weather map as it stalls over the Deep South mid-week and then retreats north as a warm front this weekend. The "muggies" return Saturday and so does a higher likelihood of scattered showers and thundershowers. Essentially, it's back to business as usual for late July.
