% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Outlook

A weak area of relatively dry high pressure will build over the area today, but with a lingering front draped in and near the region. Moisture is then expected to increase across the area Sunday through the first half of next week, as a Bermuda high strengthens over the western Atlantic Ocean, threatening a return to warm and humid weather conditions.
