Forecast: Another Unusually Cool Day, But The Weekend Warms Up

I confess, I love this weather.

I know, it's July. It's supposed to be hot and humid. But today's temperatures give us a break from the typical — like a 70-degree day in February. It's not supposed to happen, and as a result, it can feel like such a treat, especially for those of us who don't love the heat and humidity of summer.

If you do love hot weather, though, don't worry. Summer isn't over any more than winter is over when we see a big thaw in the middle of the coldest months of the year.

Today is another day in which the influence of the Atlantic Ocean is the predominant player. Temperatures won't get out of the 60s, and there could be a few showers.

The rain today won't be a washout. There's no chance of thunderstorms, and there will be many dry hours as well today.

Tomorrow things get better with more in the way of sunshine through the clouds, but still a few light showers. It will be warmer, feeling more like summer with highs near 80. Those temperatures are well within the range of expected highs for mid-July.

Sunday begins a period warmth and some good beach days. It may even turn hot in the middle of next week with a day or two of 90-degree heat. So while today's cool air may not be what you want, enjoy it. But, summer is far from over.
