The first heat wave of 2019 has ended with widespread
precipitation exiting the area to the east. Replacing the hot and
humid weather is a cooler and drier high pressure area that should
dominate our weather throughout the week. We'll see light
northerly winds today, ushering temperatures some 15 to 20 degrees
cooler than Saturday and some areas on Sunday. Humidity will much
more comfortable with dewpoints in the lower 60s today. Tuesday
morning lows will be close to record lows as the cooler and drier
air mass continues to settle over the region. By Wednesday
morning, with the center of the high pressure area sitting
overhead, there could be some patchy fog. The main inhibiting
factor should be the much drier air in the region. But with much
of the area recently seeing rainfall, wouldn't be surprised if
there was some areas of fog. That high pressure will move to the
east of the area Thursday and Friday. This will allow 
temperatures to start warming back to closer to normal values with
highs climbing into the upper 80s by the end of the week.
Temperatures should climb back into the lower 90s late in the
weekend. But the upper pattern remains flat with the upper ridge
still over the Southwest through the start of next week.
