<< Good morning, I'm meteorologist Leo
Hirsbrunner in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. High pressure will build east
keeping the week dry and progressively
warmer. With the lower dew points, look
for abundant sunshine with a few
fair-weather clouds each afternoon.
Temperatures will start to climb back
into the upper 80s throughout the week.
EXTENDED OUTLOOK: A few models have a
low pressure system moving out of the
Gulf of Mexico late this week, then
pulling north into our region. The low
would be intercepted by a cold front
Sunday and Monday. If this happened,
the end result would be isolated

<< Good morning, I'm meteorologist Leo
Hirsbrunner in the SkyTracker7 Forecast
Center. High pressure will build east
keeping the week dry and progressively
warmer. With the lower dew points, look
for abundant sunshine with a few
fair-weather clouds each afternoon.
Temperatures will start to climb back
into the upper 80s throughout the week.
EXTENDED OUTLOOK: A few models have a
low pressure system moving out of the
Gulf of Mexico late this week, then
pulling north into our region. The low
would be intercepted by a cold front
Sunday and Monday. If this happened,
the end result would be isolated
showers or storms late this week into
the weekend. At the moment, we'll keep
things dry until Sunday, where a few


showers are possible. TUESDAY: Mostly
sunny. High: 88 TUESDAY NIGHT: Mainly
clear. Low: 60 Get the latest
weather forecast and radar imagery
