We had a cold front slide through this weekend and it took the humidity and the rain with it. Monday started comfortably cool and dry around 60°. This afternoon, compliments of a steady wind from the north, will be dry, sunny and springy in the upper 70s. That forecast on paper looks outstanding but we'll be a solid 5-10° below average today. Tonight, we've got a perfect set up for a cold night. As a ridge of high pressure centers itself over the region the wind will go calm, skies will stay clear and our air will stay dry. That's a recipe that delivers low and middle 40s by Tuesday morning. Tuesday afternoon's turn around is huge; highs will climb back into the low 80s with tons of sun. High pressure will dominate the southeast through the latter part of the week keeping us dry and warming us steadily. Thursday through the weekend our winds swing around and will come from the south. You care about that because humidity and stickiness will increase along with highs in the upper 80s. Given that set up, we're forced to throw isolated showers or thunderstorms in the mix by Thursday. At this point it doesn't look like anything huge just know that by the end of the week it'll be muggier with the smallest of rain chances.

Be safe and have a great Monday!
