Today, a ridge of high pressure is anchored over the Eastern half of the nation. This is providing Northeasterly winds, clear skies and Less humidity (resulting in a pleasant feel, outside). This ridge of high pressure will remain anchored over the area until it begins to break down on Friday, in advance of our next weather maker.

In the Tropics, eyes are fixed on three different areas of interest in the Atlantic Basin, to include T.S. Isaac & T.D. TEN.

Today, pleasant conditions are abundant and will continue as we remain under the influence of this ridge of high pressure that has anchored itself over the viewing area. Expect low humidity values, clear skies (with a few clouds) and comfortable conditions to remain in the planner throughout the later part of the work week. Friday, we will see increasing clouds, rising rain chances and returning moisture, resulting in the warm and muggy summertime pattern that we are used to.
For the rest of the day
Expect plenty of sunshine with In & Out, light cloud cover, becoming partly cloudy at times. Rain chances will remain low through Thursday and begin increasing Friday afternoon. As we are on the southern periphery of a High Pressure Ridge, Easterly winds will continue today and begin shifting later on Thursday. This high pressure is also keeping the humidity values low and assisting our overnight temperature in getting much cooler than we have been seeing.
So, we will see Clear skies with a little cloud cover, Temps in the upper 80's and lower 90's, Low rain chances, low humidity values an comfortable conditions today and tomorrow.

For the rest of the 7day planner
A ridge of high pressure will remain anchored over the area until the later part of the week. We will then see increasing clouds, coupled with rising rain chances, as high pressure breaks down. With this being said, expect temperatures to also remain low, as well. Through the weekend, temperatures will gradually begin to rise and humidity values will rise as wind directions swing to the South & SE and the setup returns to a typical summertime pattern.
TODAY...Expect clearing skies through the morning, becoming mostly sunny to partly cloudy with in and out clouds and seasonal temps. Highs 89-95. East wind 2-10 mph.
