Hottest Temperatures Of The Year Arrive This Week

Challenging record highs late this week 

Discussion:
A cold front is moving through bringing scattered showers and isolated storms to the region. Isolated storms have the potential to produce strong wind and small hail. Showers will exit west to east as the cold front marches toward the coast Monday evening. An area of high pressure will build in Tuesday bringing fairly dry conditions and increasing temperatures through the week. Humidity will increase toward the end of the week.
Forecast:
Tonight: Late afternoon – mid evening scattered showers and isolated storms. Gradual clearing overnight. Low temperatures in the upper 50s. North wind 5-10 mph.
Tuesday: Sunny and dry. High: 87.
