...Drier Weather Through Mid-week...

.DISCUSSION...The slow moving low pressure system that resulted
in several days of showery weather has finally moved east. Clouds
will persist today with possibly a few patches of drizzle before
drier air and clearing skies arrive tonight into Tuesday as high
pressure approaches the region. Clouds will increase again on
Wednesday ahead of another weather system that will bring renewed
precipitation chances to the area late Wednesday through Thursday.
Winds will remain light through Tuesday while minimum RH will remain
above 60 percent today and between 35 and 55 percent on Tuesday.
