A large area of high pressure continues to drift eastward today. A warm front lifts northward as well keeping us warm and increasing humidity levels late. Appropriate for the unofficial start of summer! Most of the area can expect to stay rain-free for the rest of the evening, but a few stray showers can't be ruled out. After midnight, a wave of energy may help to produce some thundershowers, especially along the higher terrain early Tuesday morning.
As high pressure drifts east and breaks down, a summer-like weather pattern will set up for much of this week. An area of low pressure that is responsible for more flooding rains and severe weather across the Plains will be forced north of our area. Ahead of this system, a southwest air flow will result in heat, humidity, and scattered thundershowers especially in the afternoons from Tuesday through Friday. Best chances look to be Tuesday through Thursday with isolated thundershowers Friday through Sunday.
Once again I wouldn't cancel any outdoor plans, but check back for more details on the forecast. Some of the better-developed storms may contain small hail, gusty winds and downpours. An isolated severe storm Tuesday through Thursday cannot be ruled out. Stay with us for updates.
After Thursday, we are stuck in a warm and moist pattern for Friday through Monday. That means temperatures in the low to mid 80s with a daily shot of isolated thunderstorms.
Recap: Highs in the lower to middle 80s and lows in the lower to middle 60s this week.
Our average high is 78°, low 54°.
