Forecast: A Taste of Summer
Finally, 2008 brings the heat. For the first time this year, temperatures should rise above 85. The heat won't last long and it won't be humid, so it's too early to consider it the start of summer. Weather more characteristic of spring returns for the middle part of the week.
Sunny and very warm. Mid to upper 80s. Soak in the great beach weather today. There will be tons of sunshine (wear sunscreen and seek shade especially during the midday hours) and temperatures will climb well into the 80s. Low humidity and a light breeze (from the south) will take a bit of an edge off the hottest day of 2008 to date.
Overnight, it will become partly cloudy and there could be a stray shower or thunderstorm (20% chance). It will be breezy and a bit muggy with lows only in the mid to upper 60s.
Keep reading for the forecast through the work week. See NatCast for the outlook for tonight's game.
