Thursday, August 29 Forecast Discussion

Humidity has spiked across the area today with dew points sitting in the upper 60s to low 70s. The good news is our dew points should not get much higher, which means this is all the humid we will get. The bad news is the temperature will increase the next couple of days, meaning it will feel even muggier into our Labor Day weekend.

Highs the next couple of days will be in the mid 90s, which will place heat indices right around 100 degrees. Clouds will be on the increase as well as our area of high pressure weakens to our west, which will be the catalyst for a few showers and storms to begin September.

A cold front will stall just to our north Sunday, which means very few, if any of us, will see rain on Sunday. Rain chances increase a bit on Labor Day as the front slowly works into the area with the best chance for us all to see rain being on Tuesday as the front exits. Once it exits, we will see high pressure return to clear out skies, dry the air out a bit, and hold temperatures in the low 90s for the later portion of next week.
