FORECAST IN DETAIL
Bright skies and below-normal highs greet you again today as our wonderful weekend weather continues. Increasing clouds tonight, though, will be a precursor for an unsettled pattern to come. Trapped between a Bermuda High to our east and a dip in the jet stream just to our west, we'll contend with at least the chance for showers and storms for several days this coming week. That's not such a bad thing considering how dry we've been.
Today (Sunday): This weekend concludes wonderfully with another dry, warm day to enjoy. Plenty of sun will bathe the area for the large part of the day with a few clouds building later in the afternoon. Highs should reach the mid-80s, and with humidity still at bay we're left with a very nice Sunday indeed. Confidence: High
Tonight: Light winds from the east/southeast bring with them a moister airmass. What this means for us is increasing clouds and warmer temperatures than last night. Overnight lows in the mid-to-upper 60s. Confidence: Medium-High

Tomorrow (Monday): A new week brings with it a new pattern weather-wise. Highs will struggle to reach the low 80s thanks to partly to mostly cloudy skies. Shower chances increase from slight during the morning to around 40% during the afternoon. But much of the action should be spotty and light in nature. Winds blow lightly from the east-southeast at 5-10 mph. Confidence: Medium
Tomorrow Night: We'll have the chance of a few showers and/or mist with mostly cloudy skies and lows in the 60s (suburbs) to near 70 (downtown). Confidence: Medium
Tuesday could see rain chances a bit higher (around 50-60%) as a wave of low pressure moves through the region. Skies should once again be mostly cloudy with most of us likely to see at least a passing shower, and maybe more. Temperatures will struggle again -- toward highs near 80. Shower chances continue overnight with lows in the upper 60s. Confidence: Medium
Wednesday we may be able to say hello to the sun again, but only briefly. A few peeks are possible in the morning before a 30% chance of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Temperatures may climb a bit higher, with the humidity making afternoon highs in the mid-80s feel quite sticky. Confidence: Medium
