A weak front will approach the region late Monday into Tuesday. Spotty showers are possible ahead of it, but most hometowns will stay dry. Temperatures will soar to near 90° by Wednesday as an upper level ridge strengthens across the region.
THURSDAY & FRIDAY:
A second cold front will impact the area on Thursday. While a stray shower is possible, most communities will stay dry. Temperatures and humidity levels plummet behind the front thanks to a northwest breeze. Expect highs in the upper 70s and low 80s on Thursday, and upper 60s and low 70s on Friday.
