Expect a rather persistent pattern and forecast for us into early next week. With the low-level moisture in place look for an uptick in humidity which will also help to develop fog over the next couple of mornings as lows remain in the middle 60s. The fog will burn off to mostly sunny skies by afternoon with muggy and above average highs in the upper 80s. As was previously mentioned, there may be a rogue shower or rumble of thunder but chances are too low (10% or less) to warrant a significant mention in the forecast.
It does appear that a cold front will reach the area next week. It also appears some rain will be provided as a result. However, current forecast models vary greatly in terms of timing out this feature. Here are the two possibilities at this time: the outcome I am currently favoring would bring the front into our area Wednesday with showers and thunderstorms which linger into Thursday and then clear the area followed by average highs and lows of 80° and 60° respectively. The second possibility would stall that front over our area closer to Thursday with waves of energy bringing unsettled weather well into the weekend. Much more rain would result from this scenario. As always, this forecast will become much clearer as we get closer. Either way, temperature-wise, this front does not currently appear to have the same punch as did last weekend's and thus the cool down that follows should not be as significant.
