Forecast Last Updated at Tuesday, June 15, 2021 at 6:30AM

Dry; Pleasant; Perfect

We'll keep this as simple as the weather... Cooler, drier air is arriving thanks to high pressure centered to our northwest. Wednesday will be the coolest day of this set with some 40s for lows. The coming three days are a refreshing respite from humid weather of late. A quick warmup begins Friday. While currently we do not expect major impacts here next week from the tropical system gathering strength in the Gulf, we should an eye on it.

Forecast Discussion

A front moved through late Monday. A secondary push of cooler air arrives Wednesday. The center of high pressure moves from Minnesota today, across the Ohio Valley Wednesday and Thursday, and into the Atlantic by Saturday. Expect scattered clouds today and mostly clear skies Wednesday through Friday. Wednesday will be the coolest day with Wednesday night lows well into the 40s. A quick warmup begins Friday. To summarize--terrific weather for mid June.

The next front from the northwest sags closer early next week with some moisture contribution from a tropical system building in the Gulf. I cannot rule out an afternoon or nighttime shower or thundershower Saturday. Coverage of showers and thundershowers increases somewhat Sunday and Monday.

Tropical activity in increasing this week. A tropical depression spun up to a named storm late yesterday east of Virginia Beach taking the name Bill. It's moving northeast with no impact on our weather. The area to watch is the southwest Gulf where a tropical system is forming and will probably become a named tropical storm (Claudette) Thursday or Friday as it moves slowly north. It will come ashore in Louisiana late this week and move across the Southeast early next week.
