The humidity and unsettled weather is not too far away during the outlook period, but for now, the coming few days are looking pretty good with high pressure over much of the state and dry air under that high, clear skies and pleasant conditions can be expected.

The weather turns warmer and much more humid during Monday over the north and that starts to move south into central areas by Tuesday and statewide, Wednesday looks unsettled with a deep trough tapping into that moisture to produce scattered showers and thunderstorms.

The unsettled weather may contract east and north during later next week but returns possibly by the following weekend.

The outlook looks unsettled with a lot of humidity sweeping through the region.

Lets take a look


Rainfall Next 10 days

Not much expected from now until mid next week, with the next batch of showers and thunderstorms skirting the northern border on Monday. The storms then turn south and move into the NW Pastoral Districts on Tuesday and then further southeast during Wednesday ahead of a trough. Storms could be strong to severe and will have more to say on that during Sunday. The humid and unsettled weather continues to lay across northern and eastern areas right through next week into the following weekend.
