We’ve got another warm and humid day on tap for today as an upper level ridge moves across the region and a warm southerly flow continues in the low levels. We’ll see partly sunny skies with a chance of showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms mainly in the afternoon as diurnal heating goes to work. Highs will be in the lower 80s with south winds around 10 mph. Chance of rain is 30%. Tonight should be partly cloudy with lows in the mid 60s and south winds around 10 mph.
Tuesday should start out partly sunny with an increasing chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly in the afternoon, as a slow moving cold front and associated low pressure approach the region from the Great Lakes.
