Mostly Sunny. Isolated afternoon thunderstorm possible

Temperatures are warm this morning, in the lower 70's as of 7am. Skies are mainly clear.  High pressure off the southeast coast dominates our weather pattern and will so for the next few days.  There is a weak upper-level low west of the area that will move towards our region during the day.  Its lacking moisture, but with dewpoints in the upper 60's, there may be enough lift to ignite a thunderstorm or two during the afternoon.  It will mainly be isolated and most areas will not see any precipitation. 

Highs today will reach the upper 80's to around 90 degrees.  We may see a few days hitting 90 degrees this week, but this is not atypical and temperatures hovering around or just above the 90 degree mark is not really scorching heat.  Winds will be out of the slightly south of west direction around 10 mph.
