Warmer and becoming more humid as high pressure slides east of the region

Today’s Weather Synopsis…

High pressure will continue to slide offshore this morning providing intervals sun and high clouds, along with very warm temperatures and some increasing humidity as a southerly flow develops into the afternoon. Unsettled weather will then return through mid-week as an upper level disturbance and associated cold front bring the next chance of showers and thunderstorms.

A warm front will lift northward late tonight, eventually placing the region in a warm sector by Tuesday with increasing clouds and a chance of a shower tonight. As a disturbance and associated pre-frontal trough approaches on Tuesday, showers and thunderstorms will develop with the heating of the day and some of the storms could be slow movers with locally heavy rainfall possible. The cold front will then cross the region on Wednesday with more showers and thunderstorms, but severe parameters don’t look too impressive and therefore the main threat appears to be heavy downpours once again. High pressure will then begin to build in behind the departing front late Wednesday into Thursday with pleasant and seasonable weather returning through late week.
