This stubborn active summertime pattern will continue throughout the middle of the workweek before a gradual drying trend expected by the end of the week. There’s an area of upper level weakness over New England in place through the early part of the week with a massive high-pressure system sitting over the western third of the country. A frontal boundary will continue to slowly sag south into northern Louisiana and northern Mississippi through today. The front will stall and remain over the forecast area through the middle and latter part of the week, then begin to dissipate. Today will be the wettest day as rain chances will range from 70-100%.
Temperatures could struggle to get much above 80 for highs on Tuesday as cloud cover and rainfall are expected throughout much of the day. A gradual return to more typical summertime conditions as upper level high-pressure tries to slowly build in from the west by the end of the week. Temperatures could climb into the lower and middle 90s by the end of the weekend with partly to mostly sunny skies and rain chances ranging from 20-30%mainly during the afternoon and early evening.
