Welcome to summer!

The weather for the first full week of summer will be much nicer than the rainy last week of spring, according to the National Weather Service.

“For the most part, it’s a much brighter, more summerlike week,” National Weather Service meteorologist Tim Morrin said.

Sunday was sunny with a high in the 80s and Monday will be mostly sunny with a high near 80, the weather service said.

A chance of rain and thunderstorms arrives Monday night and Tuesday. Tuesday's high will be near 78.

But sunny skies — and thus joy — are expected to return the rest of the workweek.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be either partly or mostly sunny with highs between 81 and 83.  

A chance of showers returns on Saturday, which will also be partly sunny, with a high near 80.

The week will have an early summer weather pattern, Morrin said, which includes an increase in humidity. It will be a bit warmer than usual for this time of year, with an average high at 79 midweek.
