Very Nice Stretch of Weather Ahead

After a line of strong to at times severe thunderstorms moved through last night, our temperatures have been seasonable, and our humidity values have been decreasing. That is because those storms were associated with a cold front. Once it cleared the area, winds turned northerly, ushering in drier and cooler air. That airmass will continue to be in place over the Midwest and Great Lakes regions through Monday night.We can thank our good friend high pressure for keeping the beautiful weather in place for over 72 hours. Temperatures will not exceed the lower 80's through Monday with overnight lows near -- or perhaps just below -- the 60-degree mark. Skies will remain mostly sunny to partly cloudy each day through Monday with less than a 10% chance of a shower on Sunday. The pattern does begin to change beginning Tuesday with high pressure pushing eastward, which will result in winds turning southerly. That means temperatures ramp up into the upper 80's and lower 90's with a few showers and storms possible, especially during the latter half of the week. Enjoy the beautiful weather!
