Discussion

It's been a struggle to get significant rain recently, but an approaching cool front from the northwest and the spinning remains of Tropical Storm Ana to the south will increase the odds for showers and thunderstorms later today, but certainly, it is not a guarantee that all areas get hit. It'll remain quite humid through tomorrow and temperatures may climb to the warmest levels so far this season on Tuesday afternoon - perhaps reaching the upper 80's. Big changes are due, however, for the second half of the week with refreshing air pushing in for the Wednesday, Thursday, Friday time period. We should even see overnight low temperatures in the 40's later this week following the passage of a cool front.
