More heat and more humidity will arrive this week, feeling more like a typical August.  

It will be a comfortable evening with temperatures falling into the low 60s by Monday morning.

You may have noticed how comfortable it was last week.  Temperatures were running around 10 degrees below normal for this time of year but the dew point also played an important role.  High pressure brought in a quiet and dry pattern, allowing the dew point to hover in the mid 40s during the afternoon.  The wind will be turning out of the south this week, allowing more heat and moisture to push in.  The dew point will be climbing into the mid to upper 60s by Wednesday.   Check out the dew point temperature scale:

Its going to feel more like spring, as my family and I get ready to move back in Indiana, from being in south Texas for the past four years.
