A cold front will cross our state later today. Ahead of it, expect muggy conditions with scattered showers (and a rumble of thunder or two). This rain is much needed, but it won’t be enough to improve the drought that most of the state is dealing with. Rainfall estimates will range from a trace to .25″. It will be cooler than yesterday, but it’ll still remain above average with highs in the low-mid 80s (typically highs should be in the mid-upper 70s). Yet, cooler air will move in behind the front and skies will clear in its wake. Tonight, expect lows in the Mid-upper 50s (with dew points near 50° = comfy!).
High Pressure will dominate our area for Tuesday…leading to lots of sunshine! Highs will remain above average by around 5° as highs hover around the low-mid 80s. Tuesday night will be another refreshing night with lows in the upper 50s.
The winds return out of the south by Wednesday ahead of another weak cold front; so, expect highs to warm into the upper 80s with spotty showers possible late. It’ll be cooler behind the front for Thursday (low-mid 80s), then the southerly winds will return again by Friday. Plus, an upper level ridge of high pressure will build over the eastern U.S. This means a return to unseasonably hot temps Friday into the weekend with low 90s….stay tuned.
