A dry start to the long holiday weekend


If you have outdoor plans this long, holiday weekend it looks like you are going to be ok. There is just the slight chance for an isolated shower tomorrow afternoon. Summer time heat and humidity return for much of the upcoming week.

We will start dry with some patchy clouds this morning, then more sunshine is expected later in the day. Temperature should make it back to around 80 in the afternoon with a light southeast breeze. A near perfect start to September and meteorological fall!

As high pressure continues move away from the Northeast, which will allow our temperatures and dew points to increase. Sunday starts comfortable, but dew points will rise throughout the day. Some showers are possible Sunday afternoon and evening, but they look hit or miss. Temperatures get back to the middle 80s under a partly cloudy sky.

Hot and humid weather continues for Labor Day with highs approaching 90 and dew points nearing 70. Tuesday will be a scorcher as everyone heads back to work and school. Heat Advisories may be issued as temps hit lower 90s and high humidity will make it feel more like 95-100. A cold front to our north looks to creep southward through midweek, bringing an increased chance for showers and thunderstorms. Not seeing great rain chances right now, but even the clouds should bring some heat relief. Showers and storms are more likely late in the week as a stronger front arrives.
