Today is the first day of fall, but you would never know it by looking at our temperatures! We're going to hit the low 90s once again this afternoon... a trend that will take us through the rest of the work and school week.

I can't change the temperatures, but Lord knows I can change the background picture 😏 Happy Fall, y'all!

Although a cold front to our north will be sinking south into the next couple of days, relief is not anticipated as it does not look to push all the way through the area. This front does look to drop far enough south to spark a few showers and storms Tuesday and Wednesday. Our upper level ridge of high pressure will dominate the rest of the forecast period, building in even stronger into our upcoming weekend. For this reason, expect temperatures to climb into the mid-upper 90s by the end of the 7-day forecast!
