August 6th, 2013 Forecast

As high pressure exits the region tonight, clouds will slowly increase, but not before temperatures drop off quite nicely again.  Lows will drop into the 50s for most locations, with the warm spot being the city around 65.

An upper-level trough will return clouds, showers, and thunderstorms to our forecast for Tuesday.  The day won't be a wash-out by any means, but a spotty shower or thunderstorm is possible at any point during the day.  Although there won't be much sun, southerly winds should help push temperatures up near 80.

An approaching warm front will increase our humidity by Wednesday.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms will also return due to the presence of more instability.  

Behind the warm front on Thursday, temperatures will be warmer.  A morning leftover storm will give way to afternoon sun, so if you don't mind warmth and humidity Thursday doesn't look too bad.

An approaching cold front will bring us more scattered showers and storms for Friday.  The front will clear the region Friday night, but there is not much in the way of cooler, drier air behind it, so Saturday will still be warm and humid but without the threat for storms.  A secondary cold front will pass through Saturday night, so humidity will slowly decrease on Sunday.
