Continued dry and seasonably warm as high pressure builds across the region

Today’s Weather Synopsis…

Dry weather will continue today with plenty of sunshine as high pressure builds across the region. Temperatures will be seasonably warm with low humidity levels and light winds. High pressure will slide offshore later this afternoon and into tonight with some increasing high clouds possible.

A cold front and associated pre-frontal trough will then arrive on Wednesday with a chance of showers and thunderstorms into the afternoon and evening. It will become a bit muggier, but instability is expected to remain limited due to increasing cloud cover. A much cooler air mass will settle in behind this front into late week with a slight chance of a lingering shower or thunderstorm on Thursday as the upper level trough lags behind, with the greatest chance in the higher terrain. It will remain dry into the upcoming holiday weekend with slowly moderating temperatures as high pressure controls the weather.
