Friday, August 30 Forecast Discussion

Temperatures this afternoon have already pushed 90 area wide as we are on our way to the mid 90s. If you factor in the humidity, it feels about 5 degrees warmer than it actually is. Make sure you stay hydrated as you head out an about, especially if you are going to any area football games tonight.

We will see the warm weather continue into Saturday and Sunday as our ridge of high pressure begins to weaken. As it does, a stray storm is possible Sunday afternoon, but I expect most of us to remain dry. The best chance at rain arrives Labor Day and Tuesday as a cold front that will be approaching the area works through. At this point, it does not look like we will see all day rain, but scattered showers and storms do look likely.

Rain comes to an end Wednesday as high pressure returns, and drier air will work it. We will feel that a bit in our highs as they drop to the low 90s, but especially overnight when our lows return to the 60s for the middle and end of next week.
