Today’s Weather Synopsis…

Dry and seasonable weather will return to the region today as high pressure builds back into the region and controls our weather to begin the workweek. Temperatures will slowly moderate back to near seasonable readings as mid-week approaches.

High pressure will then begin to slide offshore later Tuesday with an increase in clouds as a return flow develops. By Wednesday, a low pressure system will approach from the west bringing a chance of showers and possibly a thunderstorm by the afternoon hours, lingering into Thursday, along with a bit more humid conditions.
