The outdoors will be a bit more pleasant for the remainder of this week as an upper level ridge has moved over the Southeastern United States.
What does this mean? In short, a ridge promotes sinking air and sinking air means clouds will struggle to bubble up in the afternoon. This in turn will inhibit the development of any showers or thunderstorms.
At the same time, our winds are mainly out of the east with a slight northerly component as well, making the air drier and less humid. While highs stay above average for the rest of the week in the lower 90s, it will be drier warmth than we've seen for the past few weeks.
While we expect the weekend to begin on a dry note, it may not end that way for everyone. A weakening cold front will approach the region on Sunday. Along and ahead of it some showers and thunderstorms will fire giving us at least the 30% to pick up some rainfall.
This front, like many of its predecessors, will likely stall out keeping some scattered shower and thunderstorm activity around into early next week.
