Sunday night leading into Monday morning weather forecast

If you noticed milky, hazy skies over the weekend it was thanks to a plume of Saharan dust that has been keeping the Tropical Atlantic very quiet. That should mix out as high pressure continues to build and dominate not only our weather pattern, but the majority of the country is also bracing for above average temps. Be on the lookout for several more 100+ degree days, with heat advisories likely throughout the week. Sunshine will be the dominant weather factor, but we'll also be fairly breezy this week which is good news for wind power and the grid. As for rain? Only the lucky ones will squeak out a very isolated shower or storm this week. However, rain chances might get a boost closer to the weekend as a trough advances west through the Gulf. Fingers crossed!
