FEELING LIKE AUGUST IN SEPTEMBER
ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES EXPECTED THROUGH LABOR DAY
A FEW POP-UP SHOWERS OR T-STORMS AROUND EACH DAY
LABOR DAY WEEKEND LOOKS MOSTLY GOOD!
Today: Patchy fog early. Another very warm day with isolated showers and thundershowers during the afternoon. Highs 84-90. North wind 10 mph or less.
Tonight: Stray evening showers. Otherwise, partly cloudy with patchy fog late. Lows 59-65. Light wind.
Saturday: Mostly to partly sunny. Few afternoon thundershowers around. Highs 80-86. Southeast wind 5-10 mph.
Summertime heat and humidity will continue through the Labor Day weekend. This will produce a daily chance (around 30%) of an afternoon/early evening thundershower through early next week. Any shower that forms may become heavy and not move very fast. So, where it does rain, high rainfall totals in little time are possible. But many areas will remain dry. Keep in mind that no day looks to be a washout, but have a backup plan should a shower or storm interrupt your outdoor festivities.
With high pressure nearby, fog may form in the early mornings due to calm conditions, light wind, and little cloud cover. Be alert for that each morning especially near waterways, valleys, and areas where it rained the previous day.
Early next week a very slow-moving cold front looms off towards the west. With little to no push to guide it towards our region, the weather pattern remains in repeat mode for our area through Wednesday. By later next week, it inches closer to the area, and provides us with a better chance of rain.
Recap: Highs the next several days in the middle 80s to near 90. Lows in the 60s.
Our average high is 83°, low 59°.
