Lower humidity tonight and Monday before another heat wave this week

TONIGHT: Clear, Calm. Lo 64.

MONDAY: Mostly Sunny, Warm. Hi 87.

TUESDAY: Increasing Clouds, Stray Evening Storms. More Humid. Hi 91.

The humidity levels crept up a little Saturday night making for a warmer start to our Sunday. However, the humidity gradually fell today as a front came through the region. Passing clouds came with the front throughout the day, but in total we scored a dry weekend! Drier and cooler air continues to hold on tonight with low temperatures heading for the lower 60s, and few outlying areas will likely drop to the upper 50s!

The quiet weather continues through Monday as high pressure maintains control. While it will remain warm, a light northwest wind will keep humidity low. In general, this time frame will be gorgeous for summer lovers with no rain chances until perhaps Tuesday afternoon.

The pattern gets a bit more unsettled as we head toward the middle of the week. Weak ripples in the flow aloft may trigger stray storms during the afternoon on Tuesday mainly over the higher terrain. As the remnants of Barry moves northeast and merges with a front, a few more showers and storms are expected to pop-up Wednesday and Thursday.

We’ll dry out by Friday as a dome of high pressure strengthens aloft. With this, a surge in temperatures can be expected late in the week as low to mid 90s appear likely with feels-like temperatures potentially making a run toward 100. With the building heat, rain chances could remain limited after the remnants of Barry depart to the east.
