Forecast Discussion

Highs will spike back up toward the lower 90’s, and it will continue to feel extremely muggy. There may be a stray shower or two with Henri still nearby, but the chance of any rainfall is very low with high pressure starting to build in overhead for Tuesday.

Ridging both aloft and at the surface will continue to bump up temperatures and keep us rather dry the next few days. Afternoon temperatures will hit the lower and middle 90’s both Tuesday and Wednesday, likely spiking around 95 degrees. Skies will generally be clear and sunny with very few clouds, though we will end up with a bit more cover from the sun by Thursday.

A trough of low pressure should be swinging across Canada by the end of the week, staying well outside of our area. Even despite the far distance from the center of this low pressure, a couple of fronts are going to attempt to drop our direction from Friday onward. The first of these will be a cold front that should be weakening rapidly and stalling out overhead, leading to just a few spotty showers and storms to end the week. This same front will then rebound north as a warm front Saturday, with a stronger, more sustained cold front rolling in Sunday. These will give us isolated to scattered showers and storms, and we’ll be a little cooler in the upper 80’s, but don’t expect a break from the humidity.

Stay cool the next few days and have a great Monday!
