Humid

This morning's visual:It was clear,very warm and very humid here yesterday.The fog was lying very close to the shore trapping the heat in here but it was a whole different story there.I was on the shore in the afternoon and it was cool and damp....almost wished I had taken a sweater.

This morning's visual:
Wow!!!Summer is here!

There is a slight chance of showers today according to the forecast but we need clouds for those and we don't have any currently.
