A shift in the weather pattern is expected for the workweek. Through the weekend, our weather was dominated by high pressure which kept us high and dry with dewpoints in the low 50s. Monday will be very similar for much of the day, but towards the afternoon and end of the day, moisture will move into our region, dewpoints will climb and a chance of showers and storms will arrive by late in the day and into the overnight.
As a cold front approaches us Tuesday, it will stall providing a focal point for showers and storms. Now it won't rain all day and won't be a washout by any means but some scattered showers and storms can be expected somewhere in our region during the day Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures will be warm, in the mid to upper 80s, close to 90 in spots.
On Thursday and Friday, another system approaches our region allowing for more showers and storms. At this time, it looks like rainfall could be a little more widespread on these days than earlier in the week. Rainfall totals for the week could be around a half of an inch or more in some locations. Heavier amounts possible in thunderstorms.
As we go into the weekend, a chance of rain lingers into Saturday, followed by a lesser chance for Sunday. Temperatures will be around or a few degrees below average.
Recap: Highs in the 80s to lower 90s through Wednesday - low to mid 80s Thursday and Friday. Lows in the 60s all next week.
Our average high is 85°, low 64°.
