More sunshine is on tap for the area on Tuesday, but cloudy days are just ahead.
High pressure will push Tuesday’s afternoon high into the mid-80s and keep clouds to a minimum.
Wednesday should start out partly sunny, but by late afternoon, showers and thunderstorms are likely to move from the Southeast into parts of our area. More widespread activity, though, is forecast to hold off until Thursday.
A combination of systems will conspire to bring in numerous showers and thunderstorms both Thursday and Friday, with probabilities around 60%.
Daytime temperatures will reach the mid-80s Wednesday but stay in the 80- to 83-degree range Thursday and Friday.
The weekend outlook calls for less cloudiness, highs in the mid-80s and a lessening chance of a shower or thunderstorm.
