T.G.I.F., and welcome to the first “summer” holiday weekend!
After a virtually cloudless day Monday, the ridge of high pressure in control of our weather will shift off of the coast Monday night allowing our flow to turn southwesterly by Tuesday.
Sunday was the warmest day since Oct. 6 of last year. Latest surface analysis shows a deep area of low pressure not too far from Chicago with a cold front trailing the low to the south-southwest.
Thursday has seen a few, spotty showers showing up on the regional radar.
We’ve had a good deal of sunshine Sunday afternoon, however cooler with a brisk wind compared to what we experienced Saturday.
There will be an extra bite in the air throughout the day thanks to a northerly breeze.
There is sunshine with most temperatures in the lower or middle 60s.
More clouds than sun will be the name of the game for the rest of Tuesday and Wednesday as temps continue to trend mild. We will top out Tuesday with highs in the mid/upper 50s and then low 60s for Wednesday.
Clouds have been on the increase throughout the afternoon Monday with skies sitting mostly cloudy to overcast across the region.
The best time for the shower looks to be Wednesday morning as the short wave moves through. High temperatures Wednesday will depend on how much sun can break through the clouds.
High pressure building in from the southwest will be the major weather player for the next 24-36 hours.
There is some patchy fog out there Friday morning, but satellite shows we should get out to a fairly sunny start with clouds building toward the afternoon.
