After the noticeably cooler weather to start the week, temperatures will be on a gradual rise throughout the rest of the week.

Highs in the mid-70s will be a thing of the past by Wednesday as temperatures climb near the 80 degree mark.

Wednesday will still be comfortable, with lower than normal humidity for the end of July.

The humidity starts creeping back in for Thursday. The increased humidity and temperatures in the lower 80s will make feel more like summer, and bring back the chance for thunderstorms for late week.

These temperatures will still be just a few degrees below average for the start of August.
