How long will the sun last? Will it always be this hot and steamy?

Over the last week we saw relatively nice conditions outside, but over the weekend it was quite steamy. It looks like sun and warm temperatures will continue throughout this week. Our next decent chance of rain is going to be late this weekend and into the next. 

Weather through this week

After topping out in the mid 80s Tuesday, Tuesday night temperatures will drop to the mid 60s under clear skies. Wednesday will start out rather sunny before some cloud cover moves in making for a partly cloudy day. During Wednesday temperatures will top out in the mid to upper 80s, while Wednesday night will have clear skies and temperatures dropping to the mid 60s. Thursday will most likely be partly cloudy with steamy temperatures, as we will top out near 90. Overnight heading into Friday temperatures will drop to the upper 60s. 
Unfortunately, Friday will start a little heat wave as temperatures are going to top out in the low 90s. Friday night and heading into Saturday temperatures will only drop to around 70. During Saturday temperatures will reach a hot and steamy mid 90s temperature, thankfully there will be some cloud cover so hopefully that helps. Saturday night and into Sunday temperatures will only drop to the low 70s under some overnight cloud cover. 
What’s the cause of our dry and hot weather?

We will be under the influence of the Bermuda High this week and heading into the early part of the weekend. A high pressure system usually brings warm, dry, and rather sunny conditions…which is what we’ll be seeing!

Surface temperature anomaly late on Friday. An anomaly is a difference from average or normal, and temperatures will be 5-7 degrees above normal that evening.  
Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday

Sunday will be another steamy one as temperatures are expected to top out in the lower 90s, under partly sunny skies. Thankfully there is a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms on Sunday, so hopefully that comes in the evening and cools us off. Overnight heading into Monday, temperatures will again only drop to the lower 70s. Monday will again be pretty warm as temps are expected to top out near 90. Thankfully, there is again a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Monday, so hopefully it’ll cool us off. Heading into Tuesday overnight temperatures will drop to the low 70s. Tuesday we will top out into the upper 80s, with scattered showers and thunderstorms possible.
