We might as well have been living in the American Southwest today; our afternoon high of 87° may have made for a toasty start to our work week, but dew point values in the mid to low 60s kept things quite comfortable. It's a dry heat, right? Tuesday looks as though it'll be a cooler day over all - added cloud cover paired with scattered rainfall will help keep temperatures closer to the mid to low 80s area-wide. The passing rainfall will exit shortly after dinnertime and northerly winds will take over from there.
Clearer, drier conditions will arrive overnight Tuesday; by Wednesday morning, temperatures will have dipped back into the 50s for the first time in two weeks! That morning low of 59° combined with a pleasant northeasterly wind flow will make for nothing short of a perfect day! One can expect highs near 81° with plenty of sun and absolutely no humidity. Thursday also looks fairly comfortable: while a degree or two warmer, peak temperatures should again remain in the low 80s with clear skies and little to no atmospheric moisture.
We may begin to see some added warmth toward the end of the work week however; the mercury is expected to gradually climb into the weekend ahead. Friday's high of 85° will give way to 86° on Saturday and even 88° on Sunday afternoon! Sunday also represents the Tri-State's next chance for rainfall as well. Scattered shower and thunderstorm activity may even affect the region as we kick off the next work week.
