Temperatures today have reached the low 80's, a bit warmer than what was forecasted, due to the ample amount of sunshine we've had. It is a bit muggy out there as well, as dewpoints are in the 60's. We could see a few showers appear east of the Mississippi later this evening, but they will be very scattered, and the severe threat is very low. The showers will lead to clear skies overnight late, which could provide us with some fog as we wake up tomorrow morning. A low presure system is currently making its way through the Dakotas. With this system, there's a warm front and a cold front. The system is being to occlude to the north (this is when the cold front catches up to the warm front and usually indicates a system is degrading). The occluded front will push through sometime tonight into tomorrow. Until this front moves through, it will feel muggy out.
The low-pressure system will drift into our region from Minnesota Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning, bringing some more rain chances to the area. It won't be a drought buster, but it will be nice to have more rain. Temperatures this week will be in the upper 70's and rise into the low to mid 80's. Overnight low's look to be in the mid to low 60's. Quite an above average week as our average high is usually in the mid 70's and the low is in the low 50's.
