AFTER A NICE WEEKEND, THE WORK WEEK STARTS OUT ON THE WET SIDE… WE DRY OUT ON TUESDAY AFTER A WET AND POSSIBLY STORMY MONDAY

Was Saturday a great day weatherwise or what? It was a great day for most outdoor activities, except maybe swimming. Sunday will also be nice but a backdoor cold front will be flirting with us later in the day. Warm temperatures and low humidity levels are common in April but we all know what is coming in just a few short months. Yes, heat and humidity. Once the water temperatures come up a bit and the Bermuda High begins to influence our weather, temperatures and humidity levels will rise…. Back to the present… The backdoor cold front will not be a forceful one and it may not make much progress into and through the area on Sunday. Clouds will be on the increase but will mostly be of the high cirrus variety initially. As the low pressure system and its associated fronts push slowly in from the west, showers should overspread the region later Sunday night or early on Monday. The SPC has our region in a “slight risk” for severe weather on Monday so please stay alert and monitor your local media source for severe weather updates. By Tuesday, the wet weather should be exitiing the region although a trough will still have to clear the area. The middle of the week looks pleasant with cool air moving back into the region. Temperatures should warm up later in the week.
