Relief from Heat and Humidity

After a sticky start to the week with heat and humidity, more of that was across the area today. A cold front moved through late in the day and temperatures started to drop a bit with a drop in the humidity. High pressure will be moving in later in the day on Wednesday bringing lots of sunshine with calming winds.

Later this week another low pressure system will approach and as it moves through will bring with it a chance for showers and thunderstorms late Thursday into Friday. By the time the weekend arrives, temperatures will be back in the lower 80s with a mix of sun and clouds generally. Early next week it looks as if some slightly cooler air once more will build in. A good portion of the viewing area hasn’t even seen 90 degrees since September 9th of last year and those who haven’t seen it yet may not see it until August at this rate!
