We had a gorgeous day for the Great American Solar Eclipse, hope you got to enjoy it! The temperatures actually dropped 3-5 degrees during the eclipse, not a lot, but typically they would have gone up 3-5 degrees in that period.

A ridge of high pressure aloft will keep the sky mostly clear tonight with a partly to mostly sunny, hot and humid day Tuesday. Highs Tuesday will be in the lower to middle 90s. Mostly clear skies Tuesday night will be followed by clouds mixed with the sun on Wednesday. A cold front will start its approach on Wednesday and eventually lead to a showers and thunderstorms, mainly later in the day and Wednesday night. There is potential for strong thunderstorms Wednesday night.

The cold front will slowly move through and push south Thursday.

Thursday will not be as warm and it will feel at least a little less humid later Thursday. Highs will only be in the low 80s!
Building high pressure from the northwest, in the wake of this front, will bring cooler and dry air for Friday and the weekend with ample sunshine and low humidity. Temperatures will average below the seasonal norm.

Elsewhere around the US and World:

What was once Tropical Storm Harvey weakened Sunday into a tropical wave. However, it is expected to come back and live again when it emerges into the Bay of Campeche on Wednesday. It will organize and become at least a tropical storm while tracking northwest. It could threaten northeast Mexico and Deep South Texas Thursday night and Friday.

An outbreak of severe weather is likely over the Ohio Valley into western Pennsylvania and New York State Tuesday into Tuesday night with storms bringing damaging winds and large hail along with flooding downpours.

Have a great evening!
