Another hot start for the coast and the lakes. With moisture in place, we could see a repeat of the isolated showers and t-storms as we saw yesterday. Highs today will again reach the lower 90's. By Friday and through the weekend, we will see the moisture out and hot temps on the rise. Look for mid and upper 90's by Sunday and Monday.
U.S. postal stamps increase
Federal regulators approved a temporary 3 cents hike for a first-class stamp, bringing the cost to mail a letter to 49 cents.
The price has jumped from 46 cents to 49 cents. The new rate is effective on Sunday.
The higher rate will last no more than two years, allowing the Postal Service to recoup $2.8 billion in losses. By a 2-1 vote, the independent Postal Regulatory Commission rejected a request to make the price hike permanent.
