We start this “Juneuary” work week off unseasonably warm with high pressure planted off the east coast still in control across the region. We’ll stay warm and slightly humid Monday and Tuesday with highs in the mid to upper 70s with 50/50 clouds and sun and lows in the mid 50s. Winds will generally be out of the east at 10-15 mph on Monday, becoming south/southwesterly and gustier come Tuesday afternoon. A spot shower here and there is not out of the question. By Wednesday, the dome of high pressure slides eastward, making way for a frontal system to proceed into our region. This front will bring with it a good chance of thunderstorms, some of which could potentially be severe. At the moment, the main threat looks to be gusty straight-line winds, but it is still too early to nail down the details. This cold front will live up to its name, bringing us back to average temperature-wise with highs in the lower 60s and lows in the lower 30s and sunny clear skies to end the work week.
