Extended Outlook:
In general, the trend this week will be warm, thanks to an area of High pressure moving in. High pressure tends to lead to sinking, stable air which is not conducive to rain. But, a few weak spots in this pattern will allow some thunderstorms possible in the afternoon hours starting Wednesday and increasing this weekend. Still, expect temperatures to be summer-like and above average.
