TONIGHT: Mild, Increasing Clouds. Lo 66. Winds N 0-5 mph.
MONDAY: Muggy, Hot. Hi 90. Lo 68.
TUESDAY: Cooler, Less Humid. Hi 83.
All things considered today was hot, but not overly humid. The daily high will be in the upper 80s for many with a warm evening in store. Skies should stay clear until later tonight as the majority of the incoming clouds and moisture stay north of the region.
This late summer heat holds for Monday before temperatures step back into Tuesday. The humidity will also climb for a time Monday, but this unfortunately does not help our rain chances. The large ridge of high pressure will shunt the next front off to our north. However, a fresh area of high pressure from Canada arrives. This knocks our temperatures back a few notches to the low 80s.
By the end of the week there is a slightly stronger signal for some showers and storms. The most likely timeframe has been sitting in the Thursday-Friday timeframe. There may be a few leftover showers or storms by Saturday, but signs point to another pleasant, mild and mainly dry stretch by next weekend.
