Temperatures will be running well above normal for the Tri-States. Warm air will hold firm and weekend temperatures will be around 10 degrees above normal. Relative humidity will be low keeping the warm air in the comfortable zone. Next week a complicated weather pattern sets up with mid level moisture floating in to the area out of the southeast combining with a strong cold front rolling in from the northwest. Right now it looks like the cold front will pass through the area on Tuesday with cooler temperatures quickly following. As a result, high temperatures will only warm to the 70s Wednesday. This cold front should also spark some showers and thunderstorms.
