Warm and dry conditions will be the rule much of this this week.
High pressure over the Great Lakes, extending into the Midwest, will gradually move off to the east, allowing winds over the region to become southerly, allowing warm air to flow into the area.
Colder air continues to settle across the nation’s mid-section in the wake of a departing storm.
A Freeze Warning is in effect for Thursday morning across the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles.
Summer-like warmth and elevated humidity is expected Tuesday in the wake of late Monday’s warm frontal passage and scattered thunderstorm clusters. A stout south wind and ample to abundant sunshine will push top temperatures to either-side of the 80-degree mark.
