The dip in the jet stream which brought this cool weather will be persistent for a couple of more days. Wednesday will feature at least a few more peeks of sunshine in the morning. But that sunshine will help to spark off more instability clouds and scattered showers in the afternoon. While much of the area still can be rain free, more spots will have a shower than they did on Tuesday. Wednesday will still be be another fall-like day with temperatures struggling to reach into the lower 70s. Any showers that develop should vanish for Wednesday night and we'll be left with some clouds and lows in the 50s. Thursday will not be as cool with at least partial sunshine bringing temperatures back into the 70s, even the upper 70s in places. A stray shower or thunderstorm can not be ruled out. Friday will be a touch bit warmer and a little more humid with a mix of clouds and sunshine and a little better chance for a pop up shower or thunderstorm. Temperatures will reach back to near 80. A plume of moisture will give us even a better chance for showers and thunderstorms Saturday and Sunday but there should also be some breaks of sunshine. High temperatures reach to near or just above 80. With more humid air returning, the nights will become muggier with lows in the 60s. Fans and air conditions may be needed again. Monday into Tuesday will be seasonably warm with clouds and sunshine with just the chance for a pop up shower or thunderstorm each day. Temperatures look like they will be near average for early August and we'll see about average summer-like weather through the middle of next week.
