NEXT WEEK

The stormy, hot, and humid pattern looks to linger until the middle of next week as a cold front slowly approaches. Looks like the front will cross through sometime on Wednesday making that the wettest day next week. The frontal passage is followed by high pressure that is forecast to bring us a dryer pattern into next weekend. Behind the cold front we are expecting a dip in both high and low temperatures.

Staying wet for most of our week, but by Friday high pressure brings drier conditions.
