A cold front continues to move away to the east tonight as drier air continues to slowly arrive from the west. High pressure over the Plains will move east, keeping our weather quiet the next day or two.
Tonight will be mostly clear and a bit more comfortable. Many of the last several nights haven't cooled off much, but I expect temperatures to drop into the lower 60's by Monday morning.
The new work week and final one of July will start off with quiet weather. High pressure will provide a mostly sunny sky with just a light breeze and highs in the mid 80's. The warmest weather of this next work week will come through Tuesday before the return of rain chances and some cooling. Humidity the next few days will be low to moderate, with dew points remaining in the 60's.
Tuesday will warm up a few degrees as high pressure slides to the Great Lakes and a weak front begins to draw closer from the west. Southerly flow will allow temperatures to reach into the upper 80's while dew points may also come up a few degrees. By late in the day and into the night a few scattered showers and storms will be possible. The front will be slow to move and may get hung up across the state during the midweek. Right now it appears our best chance to see some of these storms will come on Wednesday. It will be warm and humid with highs in the lower 80's. The upper level flow will be rather active, pushing back down across the northern states through the end of the week. This will help to knock temperatures down a bit below average, while keeping at least small chances of rain in the forecast.
Thursday and Friday look to be dry most of the time, but that shower or storm will be possible. Temperatures will top out in the upper 70's to around 80. By the weekend another high pressure system may begin to take hold, reducing rain chances with a slow warm up again by next Sunday.
