Another Push of Drier Air Sneaks In This Week (Source: WLBT)

Drier air than usual will continue working into the region this week, allowing for a very nice start to August! Highs will be slightly below normal and only stray shower chances are in the forecast through the rest of the work week. 

This weekend, an upper level ridge of high pressure will build in from the west and allow for yet another heat up... Feels-like temperatures will also be higher as muggy conditions are set to return by the end of the 7-day forecast. Fortunately, no tropical impacts are expected locally from Tropical Storm Isaias that is forecast to reach Cat 1 hurricane strength upon landfall later tonight along the east coast!

First Alert Forecast: quiet, pleasant start to August
