By  | 

Saturday will be a little warmer as we get those temperatures into the mid to upper 60s. A cold front may trigger showers and isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon that will progress southeastward through the area during the evening. No severe weather is expected.

Sunday will features highs ranging from the lower 60s northeast to the upper 60s southwest. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny with a breezy northwest winds of 10 to 20 mph.

The real warm up begins on Monday as we finally get temperatures back above average for most of next week. Look for widespread 70s Monday under sunny skies.

Tuesday will make it into the low to mid 80s. Dew points will be higher, adding a hint of extra humidity in the feel of the air. A cold front later in the day could trigger some isolated showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening. Severe thunderstorms may be possible.

Wednesday will be a little cooler with mostly sunny skies. We'll return to the mid to upper 70s and lower 80s. Expect similar conditions on Thursday.

There are hints that a stronger storm system could approach the middle of the country towards the very end of next week. Stay tuned to the forecast as that time frame approaches.
