High pressure will begin to drift to the east in advance of a dry
cold front moving in from the west. This front will pass through
late on Tuesday and will reinforce high pressure over our region
until Thursday. A low pressure system will likely develop over the
Gulf Coast region and drift northeast along the east coast. This
will bring our region a chance for another round of rain by Friday
and Saturday.
