Welcome back, Warm Sector! After a cool start to the work week, the jet stream is taking up position near the U.S./Canadian border and that puts us in a very warm and humid airmass. Summer like temperatures will stick around through the rest of the week as a result. Highs will hover in the upper 80s to around 90 degrees. Some patchy fog will develop again tonight outside of the city, but most of us should get a good view of the "Blue Moon."  Check out my blog on it here. A few afternoon showers or thunderstorms will be possible on Wednesday afternoon. But, it will be more likely on Thursday as a cold front approaches the area. It should pass through the area by early Friday and there will be gorgeous weather for the weekend with less humid air.
