Continuing to see those clear skies and low humidity readings out there today making for a very refreshing feeling in the air as you step outside. Just a few clouds this afternoon and slightly breezy winds but overall, mild temperatures and great weather across the region.
High pressure is still in control of our weather pattern keeping the sky mostly clear and the forecast dry. The humidity will continue to be low thanks to a dominant northwest wind keeping the very dry air in place. Just a few clouds developing this afternoon, but still dry conditions and a mostly sunny day. Temperatures will remain slightly below average this afternoon, topping out in the upper 70's, but it will make for a very nice day to spend time outdoors. Usually this time in early August we are seeing highs in the low 80's with lows around 60°. So, both our highs and lows have been below normal these last couple of days.
The dry and nice weather will continue into Wednesday as temperatures begin to creep back up toward 80°. We may start to see some extra clouds as the next low pressure system and front begin to move through the Plains and that high pressure (responsible for all this nice weather as of late) continues to move out of our area.
There is still some uncertainty with this next system. The front and low pressure will be arriving sometime on Thursday and it looks like the best chance for rain will now be Thursday night. We could see a couple of showers or thunderstorms arriving as early as tomorrow night, with just a chance for additional rain during the day Thursday. The rain will definitely be scattered from Wednesday night through Friday so you may want to have the umbrella just in case. We'll see a lot more cloud cover than the last couple of days and that will prevent us from warming up a whole lot. Expect temperatures to stay in the upper 70s Thursday and Friday.
The weekend will start off with drier weather, but we will be watching another system move our way, and the chance of a shower or storm will return Sunday and possibly into Monday. Temperatures should be close to average at this point (back into the low 80s), with the return of that humidity once again.
