Monday Morning Weekly Outlook: Some Slight Relief, But Overall Hot Conditions Prevail

Well there is no question it has been a miserable stretch of hot and humid weather over the last 5 days. The culprit of all of this is a high pressure system off the Atlantic coast spinning up all the hot and humid air into our area (Bermuda High)...

As this week progresses, we will start to at least get relief in the form of lower humidity. Temps will still mostly be in the 90's but a shift in wind direction to west-northwest will help keep the stickiness down. 

As we head into later in the day Tuesday, a low pressure system passing to our north will cause unsettled conditions with storms firing up...

We will have to keep an eye out for some of these storms being more severe with high winds and heavy rain Tuesday afternoon and night. 

In the wake of this Wednesday will be calm with low humidity and temperatures in the high 80s. 

On Thursday, a weak cold front should pass through the area. This means there is the chance at a few storms but the models at this time are not too impressed. 

As we get into the weekend, I see big relief finally in sight. That offshore high pressure finally starts to move away and we get calm conditions with temperatures in the low to mid 80s.
