Cloud cover associated with a low pressure system over the Atlantic Ocean will slowly thin out this morning. High pressure will act to clear the skies by later this afternoon and early this evening. High temperatures today, and low temperatures tonight, should be near normal.
Warmer, and slightly more humid will begin to work back into the region tomorrow as the high pressure area moves east of the region, allowing the southerly flow to become even more pronounced over the area. Temperatures will be above normal Tuesday through Thursday, before a cold front sweeps through the region on Thursday afternoon and evening, increasing the threat for showers and thunderstorms.
Cooler and less humid conditions will follow the frontal passage for the end of the week and into the coming weekend.
