Quiet and slowly warming
No major weather features will affect the forecast area this week, but there will be some changes the fall-like conditions noticed over the weekend.
Today and Tonight: The afternoon will bring mostly sunny skies with high temperatures in the low 80s. A clear night will have lows dropping back to the mid 50s. Both readings will be closer to normal for the time of year. Winds will stay light.
Up Next: The “chilly” nights have left us, but “cool” nights still continue. Winds will redirect toward the southeast thus humidity will rise slightly and slowly through midweek. This consequently will raise overnight temperatures as well. By Wednesday, warmer than average temperatures will be back but we're still not anticipating the record warmth experienced last week. Don't expect anything warmer than the mid 80s each afternoon. There's a better chance for a few more clouds by midweek, but at the moment rain showers aren’t in the forecast. By the weekend, all sunny skies return, but unfortunately without any drop in temperatures. It will still be more or less comfortable though.
The Tropics: All is quiet in the Atlantic Basin.
Forecast Discussion: Just a few clouds are in local skies as an upper level disturbance moves through the area. We do not expect any rainfall with this as moisture is very limited. No major changes come this week as the next feature to impact the region still looks like a weak front moving across the region later on this week. This front will struggle to reach our area. The most noticeable change due to this front will be southerly winds ahead it, returning some moisture at the surface and perhaps a spotty shower.Beyond Thursday, expect quiet weather with high pressure building in through the weekend with temperatures still remaining in the lower 80s and overnight lows in the 50s and 60s.
