Tuesday has proved to be another nice, quiet, and humid summer day. High pressure has solidified and is making it difficult for showers and storms to develop. Moisture is in place, which is why it feels humid, but not enough to make it sticky. So we’ll chalk it up to a nice day all around.

Starting tomorrow, another wave of low pressure approaches and with it comes a change to the forecast. Moisture will begin streaming in more so than now making for muggy conditions. This introduction of moisture will also fuel the thunderstorms expected late week. Clouds will increase starting late tonight and through the day Wednesday. Daytime heating and skirting waves of low pressure will cause clusters of showers and storms. A cold front with the incoming low pressure will lay across the state and put the brakes on leading to a couple of days with good rain and storm chances. A secondary front will be responsible for the increase in storms over the beginning of the weekend.
