This Afternoon

 

The high will slowly shift to our east on Tuesday and allow a few high thin clouds to enter our sky.  By Tuesday evening, a warm front associated with a storm system in the Midwest will arrive here and trigger a few overnight showers or storms.  The trailing cold front will bring more chances of wet weather Wednesday afternoon and evening.  Then the forces in the upper atmosphere take over and a trough of low pressure will keep us cooler than average again late week and into the holiday weekend. Partly cloudy skies can be expected, but can't rule out a stray shower just yet on Friday or Saturday. Hardly worth the mention.
