Posted April 18, 2016 6:29 a.m. EDT

Temperatures early Monday morning were a few degrees warmer than they were over the weekend, and that trend will continue for much of the week.

Monday will see low humidity and highs in the low to mid 80s. Bright, sunny skies will continue all day, and temperatures should reach the 70s by noon and peak around 84 degrees by mid-afternoon.

Tonight will be clear and warm as well, with temperatures hovering in the high 50s and low 60s all the way into the early Tuesday morning hours.

The warm trend will continue on Tuesday with a high of 86 and sunny, clear skies.

Starting Wednesday, daytime temperatures will be a little cooler, but highs will hover in the mid 70s for the rest of the week.

Despite these clear skies and consistently warm temperatures, the area could welcome a chance of thunderstorms and rain by Friday.
