Summer is short. Between the time the kids leave school in late June and the final week of August, there's only about 10 weeks. These are the 10 weeks most of you take at least one week off, and you don't want to pick the one or even two bad weeks of the summer. Now, I can't tell you if this is the worst week of the next six, but I can tell you it won't be the best.
Today is the the most ideal day of the next five. We will see a lot of sunshine and very warm temperatures. Highs won't hit 90, but it will get close. Humidity will remain low most of the day, but you may feel the moisture increasing late in the day.
Last night was comfortable for sleeping, but this is the last of the comfy nights for a while. The humidity will increase all night and by tomorrow morning that tropical feeling will be back.
Along with the humidity come clouds and showers. The best chance of showers in the Tuesday-through-Friday time frame comes tomorrow and again on Thursday. Wednesday and Friday also bring a chance of showers. Now you are likely seeing why this isn't the best vacation week of the year.
All is not wet, however; between the showers, if they occur, will be some sunshine. If you are on vacation there will be time for the beach, but have some backup plans for when it does rain.
