Today’s Weather Synopsis…

Weak high pressure will briefly build back into the region today, but it will remain very warm and become increasingly humid. Another frontal system will then approach late tonight into Wednesday with scattered showers and thunderstorms developing from the west.

The front will slowly drop south across the region on Wednesday with some additional showers and thunderstorms into the afternoon, some of which could become strong. It will remain warm and humid until the front clears the region on Wednesday night, ushering in a seasonable and less humid air mass for the late week period. The upcoming weekend will start out dry and fair, but could end on the unsettled side as a warm front begins to approach late Sunday.
