A calm weather pattern with warmer than normal temperatures will prevail for the foreseeable future.

Despite highs in the 80s, the humidity will be relatively low compared to last week with afternoon weather much more comfortable.

A small ripple in the upper levels will glance the area late week with an increase in clouds.

The upcoming weekend looks mostly sunny with highs in the 80s.

By late week, on Thursday, we’ll see a similar setup with only a small ripple moving around the central plains. (Actually the remnants of a tropical low)

We may see a slight increase in clouds late week but rain chances remain slim.

In case you’re wondering… the next big fall front shows up on the forecast maps around October 1st
