Sun to return, sun to stay
A dry and mild pattern is expected over the next 5-7 days.
Today and Tonight: Tuesday will be much more settled. After morning fog, sunshine will be prevalent this afternoon as high temperatures climb to the low 70s with light westerly winds. The overnight hours will be clear and seasonable with a low in the mid 40s. A weak front will come through the area, with little more noticed than a wind shift to the northeast.
Up Next: Wednesday through Friday will be clear and mild with highs moving from the low to upper 70s and lows from the mid 40s to low 50s. Warm temperatures are even in store for the upcoming weekend—highs are expected to remain in the upper 70s.
Forecast Discussion: The Eastern Trough/Western Ridge pattern is beginning to break. A surface high pressure system moving in behind Monday’s storm system will park in South Texas on Tuesday. Westerly winds at the surface will keep temperatures seasonably mild. As the trough hangs on in the Eastern U.S., one last reinforcing front may squeak through the region on Wednesday Morning, with no moisture and thus, barely a cloud. Instead of cooling, temperatures will likely just hold steady for another day as the trough exits eastward into the Atlantic Ocean. High pressure in the Great Lakes region will sink southeastward from Wednesday to Friday with an upper level ridge moving from the West and encompassing the Lower 48. With both factors noted, a thicker atmosphere and winds turning southerly will result in well above average temperatures Thursday into the weekend.
