Today's Weather: A Bit Warmer

Monday was certainly a stunning day. One could argue that if there was perfect weather, that was it.

I wonder, if we lived in a place where it was like that every day, we would appreciate those kinds of stellar afternoons.

Today is also quite nice. There will be a few more clouds and we'll perhaps cross the threshold where some of you will think it's too warm in the afternoon. Temperatures will get into the lower 80s. The air mass will still be relatively dry, meaning that you won't feel the humidity in the air.

Temperatures at night have been fantastic for sleeping, but it will be a little bit milder tonight, falling towards 60 by morning, but that means most of the night is well into the 60s.

Tomorrow, the humidity is back. Temperatures will get into the lower 80s with a blend of clouds and sunshine.

The humidity will really peak on Thursday, when dew points get into the mid and upper 60s along with warm temperatures. A cold front will cross the region in Thursday afternoon, and this could kick off a few showers and some thunderstorms.

A dry and warm wind follows for Friday, with temperatures well into the 80s. Right now, the weekend looks generally dry, but I'm not going to be able to rule out the chance of showers.
