Discussion

High pressure off the east coast will continue to pump the region with tropical air from the Gulf of Mexico; consequently, the threat for showers and thunderstorms will continue and so will the possibility of localized flash flooding. As the week progresses, however, that Bermuda high pressure system will retrograde back towards the coast and this movement will have the effect of decreasing chances for rain around here and increasing the temperatures. Highs by late in the week will reach or slightly surpass 90 degrees and the relatively hot and humid weather will continue this weekend and while there still can be some shower and thunderstorm activity, they will be far less numerous compared to what we have been experiencing.
