Daily Weather Briefing for Tuesday, June 27, 2017




LOCAL OUTLOOK

A weak upper-level system will bring an increased chance of a few showers today, but otherwise dry and cooler weather will continue through Wednesday. High pressure moves off the East Coast on Thursday with warm and humid air moving north from the Gulf through next weekend. This brings back the daily chance of afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms through the weekend.
