Quieter for now and hotter, but cooler and wetter again late week

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.
