The final day of July featured increasing afternoon clouds and temperatures near seasonable levels - in the middle to upper 80s.
As we head into the first week of August, temperatures will climb back into the 90s. A heat wave is looking likely as we see temperatures 90 degrees or higher for at least three days in a row.
High temperatures could reach close to 100 degrees by Thursday.
