A relatively nice Sunday so far as the weather goes. It’s hard to complain when the temperature fails to reach 90 degrees in August. Though it was a bit more humid than I expected, and that August sun can still do some damage, especially with no wind.

Through Tonight: High pressure is in control, keeping skies mostly clear overnight. A good night to catch the peak of the Perseid meteor shower. Temperatures will be seasonable, ranging from the mid 60s in the suburbs to right around 70 in the city. Dew points will creep up as we get closer toward Monday morning as winds switch to the northeast at 5 mph.

Tomorrow (Monday): Cloud cover will be on the rise on Monday, as a stalled out frontal boundary begins to work its way back into the region. Showers chances increase 30 percent by the late afternoon, especially south of the city, under mostly cloudy skies. High temperatures will range from 81-85 degrees. Mostly cloudy with isolated showers tomorrow night. Low temperatures ranging from 66-70 degrees.

Saturday storm totals: They were quick hitting, but they packed a punch. Check out the rain totals from last night’s storms. You’ll note the bull’s eye is once again over the eastern shore, just south of the Delaware border. Over the past month, Salisbury, Md., has received more than 2o inches of rainfall, making it the wettest mid-July to mid- August stretch on record.

Lastly, I couldn’t end today’s update without mentioning this nice tidbit from fellow CWG member Ian Livingston.
