    A high pressure system will move into the area beginning Tuesday night, pumping in warm air and keeping weather conditions fair, forecasters say. 

    Unsettled conditions will remain today and tomorrow due to the ongoing influence of a low pressure system, according to the National Weather Service. Temperatures will reach around 70 degrees today and be slightly warmer tomorrow. 

    More sunshine is likely today than tomorrow, and shower chances will begin increasing late this afternoon and last through tomorrow night, when skies will begin to clear.

    Abundant sunshine is on tap for Wednesday, when temperatures will likely reach the lower 80s inland and lower to middle 70s at the coast. A few more clouds will likely mix in with sunshine on Thursday and Friday, and temperatures will remain near the same, or perhaps very slightly cooler. 

    With increasing humidity Thursday, conditions will become muggy and summer-like, and a quick shower or thunderstorm is not out of the question. 

    An early look at the weekend indicates fairly benign atmospheric conditions and the summery conditions remaining. A chance of a quick spot shower or thunderstorm will remain.
