.Short Term [Tonight Through Wednesday]... The mid level ridge axis will shift east of the region on Tuesday as the next storm system moves into the Mississippi River Valley. With more moisture returning in the southerly flow on Tuesday, it will feel a little less like late October with highs in the mid to upper 80s and dewpoints back into the low to mid 60s. By Wednesday, a frontal boundary will move into the Southern States. With the primary energy aloft remaining well to the north, little in the way of deep layer forcing will be present to generate widespread showers and storms. However, with continued warm and modestly humid conditions, scattered showers and storms will finally return to the forecast by Wednesday afternoon. Given that model forecasts have continued to trend weaker with this frontal system will keep rain chances low for now. .Long Term [Wednesday Night Through Monday]... An upper level trough crossing over the eastern CONUS will help push through our next cold front by Thursday. Cooler weather will be on the way by the weekend with highs dropping into the 70s Thursday and Friday and cooling further into the upper 60s over the weekend as another dry cold front pushes into the southeast. Lows will be in the mid 50s Wednesday night, upper 40s to low 50s Thursday night, and dipping further into the lower 40s over the weekend. .Marine... Light onshore flow will prevail through the middle of this week ahead of an approaching cold front. This front will move through the marine area on Thursday, shifting winds to offshore. A modest increase in offshore flow is expected by Friday. .Fire Weather... Relative humidity levels will remain above critical thresholds for the foreseeable future. .Hydrology... Our next chance for rain is Wednesday, but rainfall totals are expected to be below 0.5". With area rivers currently well below flood stage and low QPF in the forecast, no flooding is expected.
