Weather: Warm, dry conditions for week ahead

While you may not be able to avoid heading back to work on Monday, you can carry a little of the weekend weather back into your office.

The work week started out warn and dry, and the pattern should continue throughout the week. Temperatures were in the mid-60s and humidity was low before dawn.

"It's a nice start to the week," Bay News 9 Meteorologist Juli Marquez said.

Skies will be partly cloudy Monday, but rain chance will be very low all the way through the work week.

The rest of the week's forecast will get a little repetitive, but shouldn't be too unpleasant. Temperatures will be stuck in the high 80s to low 90s, with lows in the high 60s to low 70s overnight.

Humidity should increase later in the week, but the real chance for thunderstorms won't arrive until the weekend, Marquez said.

For some perspective, here's a list of predicted highs and lows from around the country this week.

Bismarck, N.D.: high 78 degrees, low 43 degrees

Portland, Ore.: high 82 degrees, low 48 degrees

Boston: high 69 degrees, low 52 degrees

Chicago: high 83 degrees, low 49 degrees

Austin, Texas: high 87 degrees, low 68 degrees
