Today's Weather: Possible Showers Today, But Sunshine Is Ahead

The forecast for the upcoming week is going to be gorgeous. But the biggest issue is the fact that it really has dried out a lot over the past few weeks.

When I think back to the winter, spring and most of the summer, we had adequate amounts of precipitation, but things have really become quite dry. It looks like it's going to stay that way for the rest of the week and into the upcoming weekend. Other than a small chance for an isolated sprinkle this afternoon, I don't see any rain for the next seven days.

Temperatures will start on the cooler side at the beginning of the week and end up quite warm by the weekend. I don't want to get too excited in terms of just how warm it's going to get Saturday and Sunday, but there's a possibility we are well into the 80s.

This kind of warm weather means you can still go to the beach, as water temperatures have not cooled off a ton just yet.

There may be some ocean swells later this week, as Humberto moves out to sea. It will progress at a slow pace. The storm may even temporarily stall somewhere out in the open Atlantic near Bermuda.
