Much quieter weather is expected through the first half of the week.
We`ll remain in northwest flow aloft, but with the cold front that
brought several days of high heat and humidity and severe weather
pushed well south of the area and high pressure moving to replace
it, we`ll see more comfortable humidity values and quiet weather
through Wednesday afternoon. Highs will gradually return to the
upper 80s by Tuesday as southerly flow returns. By Wednesday,
we`ll be back in the lower 90s and the persistent southerly flow
will have allowed moisture to return to the area and we`ll again
start to see heat indices climb into the middle 90s.

Thursday through Friday, another cold front will move into the area,
in a pattern not too dissimilar to what we went through the last few
days. The main difference is that it doesn`t look as hot and humid
and as a result not nearly as unstable. None-the-less, it continues
to look like a decent chance for showers and thunderstorms late in
the work week as the front resides in the area and slow pushes
through. By Saturday, a stronger upper level wave moving across
the Northern Plains will help push the front south of the area and
for now the later half of the weekend looks to be pleasant.
