Northwestern parts will see the heaviest rain and strongest winds, whereas the southeast will get the best of the dry and bright weather. Temperatures generally around average, but sometimes cooler in the northwest. The weather may turn more settled for the first weekend in August, with temperatures trending upwards, but how long this lasts, if it occurs at all, is very uncertain.
