Watching the weather this week you can tell it is almost summer. Not from the temperatures—that's too obvious—but by the slowness by which things are happening. The front that passed through town a couple of nights ago is ever so sluggishly heading back our way. This morning's clouds and increasing humidity are early signs of the front's approach. Showers and possibly thunderstorms this afternoon are an even stronger indication that the front is near. The heavy sky cover and an easterly wind will hold today's high to the lower 70s at best.

The warm front will push closer tomorrow but probably won't pass through the city until tomorrow night or sometime Sunday. Tonight is going to be drizzly and foggy with perhaps a thunderstorm thrown in for fun. More clouds, more drizzle, and a better chance of showers and thunderstorms are in the cards for tomorrow. The temperature will be a bit warmer, with a high in the upper 70s.

Sunday and Monday are likely to be gross. Once the front passes we'll be in a muggy, tropical air mass with afternoon highs in the mid 80s and dew points close to 70 degrees. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible throughout that period, especially west of the city, with heavy rains possible on Monday. In fact, it looks like showers and thunderstorms could happen through Wednesday.
