A weak frontal system will bring a chance for showers and storms Sunday night and Monday. && .NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM SUNDAY MORNING/...
-- Changed Discussion --
A dome of high pressure overhead from the eastern Great Lakes to the coast of the Northeast will continue to result in subsidence ruling the overnight. This should force cumulus continue to fade now that peak heating has passed and result in a clear overnight. Dewpoints have already begun to increase a bit, so lows will likely remain just a tad above the levels experienced last night. However, the much more muggy and hot weather will begin to be felt fairly quickly after tonight. Fries
