Today's Weather: Comfortably Mild Start To The Week

Yesterday most definitely turned out to be the best of the weekend, with a lot of sunshine and temperatures generally in the 70s. The start of the work week is going to be quite nice and comfortably mild. Seasonal temperatures will be in the low to mid-70s, and there will be plenty of sunshine.

A warm front is going to push north on Tuesday night, and this will be the leading edge of summer-like weather for Wednesday and Thursday. It may be a bit humid for some of you Wednesday afternoon, as dew points get back into the 60s. A cold front will cross the region Thursday, bringing in drier air and returning temperatures to seasonable levels.

Overall, the pattern is very warm. Temperatures over the coming six to 10 days in most of the eastern two-thirds of the U.S. are projected to be warmer than average. This means temperatures will likely be in the 80s for several days, even though we should be in the upper 60s to mid-70s by this time of year.

Along with this warm air, I think there's going to be a few days of humidity again. This won't be as bad as last September, when the heat and humidity lasted almost the entire month.

The coolest day of the next seven looks to be Friday, when readings will stay in the upper 60s to lower 70s. But there are a lot of readings in the 80s on the horizon, so if you have some free time and want to head to the beach, the weather will certainly cooperate.
