Happy Tuesday, Qcity!

Now that the Fourth of July holiday has come and gone, it’s time to get back to business. There’s a lot to do this week, whether you are looking to network with other professionals, connect over cocktails, have a little therapy or finally finish that book you’ve been writing.

THE FORECAST: Today, the weatherman is calling for a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 1 p.m. Otherwise, we can expect most sunny skies with a high near 94. The chance for showers and thunderstorms sticks around all week along with temperatures in the mid- to high- 90s. Looks like we are in for another hot and humid week in the Qcity. (Full forecast)
