Forecast Discussion

The weather map has been so complicated for so long that today felt like a weather vacation. High pressure covers the Eastern U. S. and will gradually shift into the Atlantic. The first front this week stalls to our north, but a second will make it through our area from northwest to southeast late Saturday.

Tonight through Wednesday is dry. After a seasonally cool start to June, temperatures become progressively warmer Tuesday and Wednesday.

Increasing humidity is the story Thursday and Friday. We'll have plenty of dry hours Thursday through Saturday, but afternoon and evening thundershowers return. Friday may have the greatest coverage of the three days.

The front moving through late Saturday, ushers a return of cooler, drier air Sunday.

The biggest curiosity in the forecast will be a third tropical system in the Atlantic Basin this year developing this week. It will be in the Bay of Campeche through the workweek before moving toward Texas next weekend. "Cristobal" will be the name. It will not have any direct effect on our weather for the foreseeable future.
