Heat and humidity will build across the region today. We can thank an area of High pressure off the east coast as well as a cutoff low in Texas. The two systems will join forces to send warm and humid air into the Great Lakes. Monday highs will be in the lower to middle 80s with a solid lake breeze forming by late morning, but those along the lake shore may get a nice bounce of temperatures late in the afternoon if the southerly wind is strong enough to overcome the lake breeze.
While there will be a chance for a shower or storm along a lake breeze boundary Monday through Wednesday, it is unlikely. Expect us to really dry out the next few days with Tuesday being the warmest day as temperatures start in the mid 60s and finish in the upper 80s for most south of Lake Ontario. Wednesday will be more of the same as the Bermuda high remains in control.
Thursday starts warm (again) and will see afternoon highs crest 80°, but a boundary will approach that is expected to finally break the warm pattern. The boundary brings rain and some storms in the afternoon. Those showers continue through Friday, the last 80° day as cooler air moves in by next weekend. Friday night lows drop to around 50° and Saturday temperatures struggle to get to 70°. Humidity will be gone and it will actually feel like a crisp spring day. That will continue Sunday to wrap up the month similar to how it started; below average.
