Seasonable heat, humidity and afternoon thunderstorms will be the rule over most of the South for the first part of the workweek. But, later in the week, another front will move in from the north and get farther south than usual for this time of year, leading to a wetter and cooler setup again. I don't think we'll have the crazy amounts of rain like we did the last couple of times this happened, though. It looks as though we'll continue to have more fronts push well to the south at times as the month wears on. Out in the tropics, the Atlantic remains mainly quiet, while it's become very active in the East Pacific with concerns for Hawaii and the Mexican Riviera.

Michael and a strong, slow-moving cold front will combine to bring active weather to most of the South this week.

Another stretch of summery warmth is about to get underway and it looks as though it will last for several days over much of the South.
