A front is stretches from western New York to Oklahoma. It makes steady progress southeastward, reaching us Wednesday afternoon. After the front, high pressure centered in the Great Lakes and (eventually) the Northeast will take control of our weather.
For the rest of this evening, we'll have some isolated showers (maybe a thundershower) with lingering clouds early. Wednesday looks mostly cloudy with scattered mostly afternoon/early evening showers and thundershowers. Temperatures Wednesday will be less warm.
Thursday to early next week, we'll be under the influence of high pressure centered in the Great Lakes. However, being on the southern fringe of the high, we cannot issue an "all clear" forecast. A stray shower cannot be ruled out Saturday through Monday. But temperatures will be noticeably cooler.
It is late August, and the tropics are becoming increasingly active. Two tropical systems catch our attention. First, the remnants of Tropical Storm Harvey are putting the Yuck into Yucatan today. Once in the the Bay of Campeche, it will restrengthen potentially into a hurricane effecting Northern Mexico and South Texas early next week. A second tropical disturbance currently in the Bahamas may develop into a named storm early next week. Both storms will indirectly affect our weather next week, and there's potential for moisture from Harvey reaching us Tuesday or Wednesday.
