June 11th, 2013 Forecast

Showers and thunderstorms will continue through the overnight hours.  Most of the region is under a Tornado Watch until 10 PM, so be sure to keep a close eye to the sky.  It won't be a very pleasant night for sleeping with lows only dropping into the upper 60s and humidity quite high.  South winds will shift from the southwest at 5 to 15 mph.

Tuesday will feature slight improvement.  There will still be showers and thunderstorms around, but they will be scattered in nature rather than widespread.  It will be warmer and humid with a high near 85.  Winds will be out of the west-southwest at 10 to 20 mph.

Weak high pressure will build in for Wednesday, so we'll enjoy sun and clouds, but it will still be a bit humid.  An isolated shower or storm is possible, but most areas will stay dry.

A low pressure system will move on Thursday and bring us more rain and thunder, perhaps heavy rain at times.  Rain will gradually increase in intensity through the day, so it's not looking too good for the start of the U.S. Open.

High pressure moves back in for Friday, and I'll call it the pick day of the work/school week.  Look for a mix of sun and clouds and low humidity with high temperatures near 80.

The first half of the weekend looks great with mostly sunny skies.  There will be a few extra clouds around for Sunday (Father's Day), but it should be another dry day.  Our next shower and storm chances will be on Monday.
