Good Morning, 

Some early low clouds and fog will give way to a mix of sun and clouds this morning.  Today will be warm and humid again with highs near 90! (which rivals the warmest days we’ve had all summer! – Our warmest reading this season, so far is 92 and the last time we touched 90 was July 23rd).  No record high today though, the record for September 2nd is 101!

With all the heat and humidity we can expect a few “air mass” thunderstorms here and there. Any storm that pops up has the potential to produce heavy rain, lightning and gusty winds. Not everyone will get wet but keep an eye to the sky. Overnight we have another shot of a brief storm as a cold front approaches and then moves through.  Because of the timing of the front getting here well after dark, severe weather isn’t likely but a some locally heavy rainfall is quite possible again.

Behind the front, drier air pours in tomorrow.  It will still be warm tomorrow but not as hot with highs in the lower and middle 80s under mostly sunny skies.  Thursday and Friday should be beautiful with high pressure overhead. It will be warm, especially for September but mainly dry with highs in the 80s and dew points mainly in the 50s. 

Have a great day!
