"If you don't like the weather, stick around for a few minutes and it will change"—this old saying is fitting this week, as a series of fronts and high pressure systems march through the area. First up, the high pressure system that gave us a beautiful Sunday will slowly move offshore later today. Before that happens we should have a warm, dry and partly sunny Monday with a high in the mid 80s.
The humidity will start increasing tonight once the wind starts coming out of the south behind the departing high. Despite the southerly breeze tomorrow won't be as warm as today thanks to overcast skies and the air blowing over the relatively cool ocean. There is a slight chance of isolated showers or thunderstorms, especially northwest of the city, as a weak cold front approaches tomorrow night. Wednesday could be our first hot day since early in the month with mostly sunny skies pushing the temperature close to 90 degrees.
Unsettled, and not quite as warm, weather is expected to stick around for the latter part of the week as a warm front arrives from the south and stalls out nearby. Thursday through Saturday look to be humid and warm with highs in the lower 80s each day. Showers or thunderstorms will be possible throughout that period with the best chance being on Friday. The early forecasts for viewing the eclipse on Monday are leaning toward more sun than clouds.
