A broad area of high pressure will continue to provide pleasant conditions through mid- this week. Lot’s of sunshine is expected, although some cloudiness from the remnants of “Lee” may affect areas to the south and east. A fresh breeze will also prevail from the north, increasing to 15 to 25 mph during the mid-day and afternoon hours. Highs will only reach the lower 70s, with lows in the mid- and upper 40s.
Looking ahead, the 6- to 10-day outlook calls for below-normal temperatures, except for warmer-than-normal weather across the western half of the nation. Meanwhile, near- to below-normal precipitation across the majority of the U.S. will contrast with wetter-than-normal conditions in the Four-Corners region, the central Gulf Coast region, and the Atlantic Coast States.
