The end is in sight. There is light at the end of the tunnel… and all those other weather clichés.

The weather pattern that brought us the soggy, windy, floody weather will be breaking down over the next day.

While we still expect some minor flooding on Tuesday, the water levels will be much lower, especially in the afternoon.

It’ll still be on the breezy side, but the winds will be more manageable. Expect a northeast breeze at 10 to 20 mph with some higher gusts on Tuesday.

As a broad area of high pressure builds into the region, expect some very pleasant weather on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

We should enjoy plenty of sunshine with a few passing clouds from time to time and high temperatures in the mid-to-upper 70s and lower 80s.

A cold front crossing the region may bring us a few showers Friday night and early on Saturday. Behind that cold front expect high temperatures only in the upper 60s and lower 70s this weekend.
