The back door front has passed off to our south and east this morning, and drier, cooler air is making its way into the region. Surface high pressure will nose into the area for today, giving us a very nice day with low humidity and a warm afternoon. Any morning low clouds should mix out fairly quickly and there will be plenty of sunshine today. These wonderful conditions will continue right into Sunday! We will gain a few degrees Sunday, but high pressure will continue to dominate.
High pressure will slide off the coast Monday as upper level ridging takes over. This will shift winds out of the SW, allowing temperatures and humidity to rise for our Labor Day. We will remain dry this day, but it will certainly feel like summer as temperatures get into the upper 80s (about 10 degrees above average).
Upper level ridging will continue for Tuesday as a cold front moves through the Great Lakes. This will really pump the heat this day, getting close to or above 90! Wednesday looks similar, but the cold front will be approaching so a few thunderstorms are possible this day.
The front should slow once it passes the mountains late in the week, so this should be monitored. This may allow for unsettled weather through the end of the work week. Temperatures should return closer to average (near 80) for the end of the week into next weekend.
