'Outdoor'able conditions this weekend

Heat returns Monday with flooding rains to likely follow

Your afternoon will be a warm and steamy event despite the fact a cool front is passing through the area.  Still can't rule out a renegade shower or thunderstorm as daytime highs climb around the mid to upper 80s.

By tonight, skies will be clear with overnight lows around the lower 60s.

This will set the tone for an absolutely stellar weekend with full sun, lower humidity and highs in the lower 80s both Saturday and Sunday.

We'll get a boost in temperatures on Monday with highs approaching 90 before the remnants of Tropical Storm Cristobal arrives on Tuesday into Tuesday night.

Being tropical, rainfall amounts could range between 1-3 inches.  Track will be the key.

Skies will become brighter and more seasonal in the days to follow with highs around 80 and lows around 60.
