The warm weather will continue Tuesday with little change in the forecast. Higher humidity begins to return early next week. The ridge of high pressure will begin to break down about Wednesday.

This will lead to scattered thunderstorms. A series of disturbances will provide a chance for storms Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of next week. There’s a chance some storms could become strong to severe. Temperatures will cool with highs dropping to the mid 70s by week’s end.
