THIS EVENING: Scattered Showers, An Isolated Storm Possible. Temperatures In The 70s. Winds: Light.

TUESDAY: Partly Sunny, Stray Shower. Hi 77. Winds: E 5-10 mph.
A trough is currently pinwheeling over the Great Lakes with numerous little waves of energy riding around it. One of these waves will generate some showers this evening. With some instability around thanks to sunshine and elevated humidity, a thunderstorm or two is also possible. Any rain should end overnight but a light east wind will keep the clouds around with mostly cloudy skies expected again for Tuesday morning. It will be mild with overnight temperatures struggling to drop into the low 60s.
Tuesday and Wednesday will offer similar conditions to today, with morning clouds and afternoon periods of sun both days. However, the trough will begin to split with one piece moving off the New England coast, and the other closing off into an upper level low close to the Tennessee Valley. In between, a bubble of high pressure will build into the northeast, which means mainly dry weather for us. A stray shower is possible through mid-week, but the vast majority of the period will be dry.
The upper level low will eventually meander east by this weekend, bringing the return of some showers by late Friday and mainly into the first half of the weekend. It looks dreary but neither day will feature an all day steady or heavy rain. We go back to dry weather early next week as the system slides east of us. Throughout the next week, temperatures will remain above average with highs in the 70s and lows in the 60s.
