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.

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.
