  • Sunny, dry through midweek
  • Next storm chance early Thursday
  • BIG warmup in store for late this week

A cold front has moved through this evening with drier weather arriving behind it. This means more sunshine Tuesday as the skies clear with lows around sunrise in the mid 50s. Afternoon highs climb to the upper 70s and low 80s through midweek. With lower dew points, it should also feel a lot less humid over the next few days.

WEDNESDAY - THURSDAY

Look for plenty of sunshine Wednesday along with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s once again. By Wednesday night, another chance of showers and storms push back in from north to south which may linger into early Thursday morning before clearing out. Thursday will feature increasing sun late in the day with afternoon highs in the mid 80s.

A front moves into the region late Wednesday night into Thursday morning with scattered showers.

FIRST 90s OF THE YEAR COMING

Get ready for a MAJOR warmup by the end of the week. Friday could be our first 90 degree day for some places. Upper 80s and low 90s are on tap even into Saturday. Any outdoor plans or graduations this weekend? You’ll want to have the H2O and the sunblock nearby! The UV Index will be in the very high range.

Warmest air so far this year is set to arrive on Friday.
