After a busy stretch, dry weather returns this week
Less humid weather returns Tuesday onward
- Rain showers linger tonight
- Dry, less humid pattern returns this week
The Severe Thunderstorm Watch has expired across our area. Reports piled up this evening afternoon a broken line of severe storms pushed through our area. Downed trees and power lines were reported in many areas due to damaging wind gusts. The rest of tonight will be tame with only residual showers from the days activity. Lows fall into the 60s with some patchy fog possible in areas where it rained.
A shift in our pattern is expected this week. Behind the front moving through tonight high pressure looks to build in. We should have a noticeable change in the humidity this week with plenty of sunshine across the region. Highs look to fluctuate a bit through the week with Wednesday being the coolest as highs look to only be in the 70s across the region.
WATCHING THE TROPICS
The tropics appear to be heating up. The National Hurricane Center is watching an area in the Gulf of Mexico for tropical development. At this time there is a 50% chance of development in the next 5 days. Another area has developed off the East Coast, but is expected to remain out at sea. As always when we see development in the Gulf we will need to watch the forecast.
