High pressure to the south pumps in the warmth on Tuesday. Mostly sunny skies and winds from the south-southwest push highs to the upper 70s and low 80s as the humidity remains generally acceptable for this time of year. Tuesday night stays on the mild side as clouds increase ahead of an approaching front. Lows range from near 60 to the mid-60s, perhaps warm enough in the city for the A/C rather than windows open. Confidence: Medium

With a cold front draped across the region on Wednesday, we could be in for some unsettled weather. The exact progression of the front will determine just how many showers and possibly thunderstorms we see, but many areas could see at least a quick shower. We’ll fine-tune as we get closer. Otherwise, skies are partly sunny to mostly cloudy with highs in the mid- to upper 70s. Confidence: Low-Medium
