As for any relief from the summer humidity, there won’t be much rain to cool us off. Scattered shower chances arrive late Tuesday. They last on and off through Wednesday, with a few storms possible. Thursday and Friday feature isolated showers, but not enough to provide widespread relief. By Saturday drier air moves in, doing a 1-2 punch to both the humidity and rain chances.

Looking for relief? Even our rain chances are low and scattered for this week.
