The biggest change will be the lower humidity as dew points stay in the 50s until late in the week. Wednesday and Thursday will feature a mix of clouds and Sun.

Late in the week, a storm system from the southern Plains will move in some more humidity and the next chance for rain.

On Friday, a chance for a shower will return to the area, with possible thunderstorms each day of the weekend.
