Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 9:00 a.m., Aug. 3, 2015

It is going to be a great Monday out there today! Temperatures will be on the warm side, rising into the mid 90s, but it won’t feel terribly humid.  Expect sunny skies with a slight breeze in the afternoon and a few clouds on the increase as we head into the evening. There could be a slight chance of a shower or storm after about 7 p.m. tonight, but more areas will likely stay dry.  Heading into Tuesday, temperatures will top out in the lower 90s with a mix of sun and clouds. There will be a better chance of isolated showers and storms on Tuesday. Temperatures continue to drop off through mid week as daytime highs on Wednesday top out around 90 degrees with partly cloudy skies. An area of low pressure will push out of the Midwest and into the Mid Atlantic towards the end of the work week. Temperatures will reach the 80s for Thursday and Friday with rain and storm chances each day. High pressure builds in for the weekend bringing sunshine but temperature stay in the 80s for some continued heat relief.
