The clouds weren't enough to totally obstruct the view of the solar eclipse Monday afternoon. For those who were able to get outside and view it, what a neat experience that won't occur again until 2024. Otherwise, it was a warm and humid day with highs topping out in the mid 80s, while dew points were climbing up through the 60s.
Outside of the chance for a stray evening shower or thunderstorm, Monday night will be dry. Look for partly cloudy skies (when it's not raining) with perhaps some patchy fog redeveloping. It will be a sticky summer night with lows only around 70, which means the air conditioner will likely come in handy to keep things comfortable overnight.
Beyond the celestial show on Monday, much of the week looks fairly quiet. In fact, we're can expect one of the nicer and drier forecasts we’ve had amidst a very wet summer. After a hot and humid Tuesday with sticky sunshine, a cold front could cause a few thunderstorm to pop Tuesday night. That cold front will promptly sweep any storms along with the higher humidity off the coast and out to sea for Wednesday. If you’re not a fan of the summer muggies, you’ll love the air mass that is going to build in for an extended stay later this week and right through next weekend. Plentiful sunshine and mild temperatures will be the rule each day, followed by clear, cool, and comfy nights that will make for great sleeping weather.
A quick check on the tropics currently shows there are no named storms to track, although one currently deceased storm may come back to life in the coming days. Tropical Storm Harvey fell apart on its trek west across the Caribbean Sea, but could try to redevelop as it crosses into the southwest Gulf of Mexico this week. Interests in Mexico and even far South Texas should monitor the possible rebirth of Harvey over the next few days. Another tropical wave moving through the Bahamas is also being watched for the chance for some slow development, though nothing is imminent.
