Dries Out, Humidity Drops Today

After a soaking for some...and a modest rainfall for others, the frontal boundary responsible for this mess has exited the coast and is pushing into the Atlantic.  However, the upper level energy associated with the storm system will hang over the Lakes for the next few days, which means we'll enter a period of cooler weather and eventually entertain shower chances as we move into the start of the work week.  That said, today's going to shape up as a pretty decent day overall.

We're starting off in the 60's in most places with clouds starting to break up a bit around the region...we will have intervals of clouds and sunshine...generally more sun this morning across the whole of the region, shifting east this afternoon while clouds move in to the western parts of the region.   It will be a bit breezy at times as west winds at 12 to 16 miles per hour, gusting to over 20, push through the region.  This will help lower dew point levels through the region and make for a pretty tolerable day humidity wise.  The result will be high temperatures in the middle and upper 70's across the region, warmest along I-95 and points east.
