Weather: warm and humid to kick off the week

A few warm, muggy days will kick off the work week.

Monday morning dawned in the mid-to-high 60s, and temperatures will climb into the mid-70s by afternoon. Those temperatures are above average for this time of year, Bay News 9 Meteorologist Josh Linker said, and it's more humid than normal as well.

A 30 percent chance of showers is predicted for Monday afternoon, and that pattern will continue through Tuesday as well.

But a cold front will come through Wednesday night, meaning slightly cooler temperatures that day and a chance of scattered thunderstorms that night.

"Cooler weather will come in for Thursday," Linker said.

That day will only top out near 60, but temperatures should warm up into the high 60s again by Friday. The latter part of the week will be partly cloudy, but should be drier as well.

For some perspective, here's a list of high and low temperatures predicted around the country this week.

Seattle: low 37 degrees, high 55 degrees

St. Louis: low 10 degrees, high 38 degrees

Green Bay, Wis.: low -13 degrees, high 17 degrees

Phoenix: low 50 degrees, high 82 degrees

Boston: low 13 degrees, high 35 degrees
