Wednesday, August 28 Forecast Discussion

Temperatures today have been slow once again to really warm up as we move into peak daytime heating hours. This is thanks to a cool pocket of air sitting just above the surface over top of us that is limiting our warm up. This will get eroded this afternoon and evening, although a little to late to do anything today, but will set the stage for much warmer and more humid air for Thursday.

Thursday will see highs reach the low 90s but humidity return to the area, with the warmest readings of the week on Friday and Saturday with highs in the mid 90s and heat indices in the triple digits. Rain chances look to stay away until the back half of the weekend, as high pressure weakens just a bit and our highs start to drop.

Sunday will see the chance of pop-up storms returning thanks to the aforementioned weakening ridge. The best chance of rain right now looks to be on Labor Day as a cold front moves through the area. It does not look like this front will have much support and not an extremely soupy air mass, so for now, am only expecting nuisance isolated storms to try and wreck havoc on your Labor Day. Storms are possible as well on Tuesday as the front clears before high pressure looks to return for the middle of next week.
