Period begins with ample amount of moisture in place as a warm front moved through earlier in the day. This has led to an increase in temps and humidity as well as a few isolated thunderstorms. Expect more of the same for Tuesday as we sit between high pressure to the east and a strong cold front to the north. This front will move very fast through the state overnight Tuesday and early on Wednesday with showers and thunderstorms along it. With timing, severe threat will be limited, but a few strong thunderstorms can not be ruled out. Drier air will move in behind the front with dew points dropping down in the 40s and 50s and night time temps responding accordingly. Lows will be in the 50s north and some outlying areas of central with 60s elsewhere. Highs will generally be in the 70s albeit a few 60s north are possible.
Period begins with high pressure overhead slowly shifting east. This will allow a return flow to southerly increasing both moisture and temperatures. Flow will become zonal late in the period, bringing temps back up to above normal levels as we start October. With the added moisture in place, there will be a small chance of an isolated shower each afternoon, but nothing organized is expected. There are signs just beyond the period of another cold front moving down out of Canada, which is common for the temp swings this time of year.
