Starting the week on Tuesday

by

Tomorrow we have a wound-up area of low pressure moving across the upper midwest which will bring a week cold front through the region. With this should come an increase in clouds for a while Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday morning. Even with an increase in moisture ahead of the front it will be hard for the atmosphere to moisten enough  for widespread showers since current relative humidities are only around 30%. I’m only expecting isolated showers and thunder from this frontal passage. Highs should be from the mid 80’s to low 90’s Tuesday while in the 80’s Wednesday and Thursday.  

For more on Friday and our next likely chance for rain please  read below to the previous post.
