Much cooler weather with high temperatures in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees this upcoming week, besides Tuesday.

Sunday marks the first day of a nice stretch of cooler weather this week.

We start Sunday morning with isolated showers and partly cloudy skies as a cold front
passes through. By the afternoon, a high pressure system dries out the air with low
humidity and decreasing cloud cover. Even with mostly sunny skies Sunday afternoon, it
won't be hot with high temperatures only in the upper 70s. This is because a nice
North wind will keep us cool throughout the day.

Dry weather continues Sunday night with mostly clear skies. This allows all of the
heat at the surface to escape and the result is low temperatures in the upper 40s to
low 50s. This means you can turn off the AC and open up your windows to let your home
cool down.

The same pattern continues on Monday with mostly sunny skies and high temperatures in
the upper 70s to near 80 degrees. Cloud cover will increase Monday night as the next
weather maker moves in. These clouds will act as a blanket and trap heat at the
surface, which is why our low temperatures will only bottom out in the upper 50s to low
60s.

These clouds are associated with a warm front that will move through our region
Tuesday. This will bring a South wind with warm and humid air, which will help us heat
up into the low 80s Tuesday afternoon. But this heat won't last long as a round of
rain showers and thunderstorms in the late evening will cool us down.

A cold front moves through on Wednesday with more rain showers and thunderstorms. We
will stay cool with high temperatures near 80 degrees.
