Lows dip down into the mid 60s and skies are mostly cloudy.
The shortwave continues to move east over the region Monday and that will help bring a 30% chance of a few isolated showers and storms to the region. We are warming up with highs in the mid to upper 80s.
Tuesday we have enough heat and humidity to warrant another 30% chance of an isolated shower or storm. Lows are in the upper 60s and highs reach the low 90s. Get those air conditioners ready!
Dry air filters in Wednesday as high pressure brings in an eastern flow. This high sits off the coast of Virginia and brings the cooler and drier air in lowering temps into the low 60s for the morning and highs reach the low 80s by the afternoon.
