FIRST OF 4 DAYS OF 90 DEGREES PLUS
COLD FRONT THURSDAY BRINGS LATE WEEK BREAK
QUESTIONS REMAIN FOR THE LABOR DAY WEEKEND
The next 4 days will be hot humid and increasingly uncomfortable. Dew points are headed back into the 70s creating a rather oppressive atmosphere. It is a late season heatwave with 4 days of 90 plus. We have extended the 90 degree highs by an extra day as the next cold front takes longer to get through here and doesn’t make it through here until sometime Thursday afternoon. Thunderstorms will be virtually non existent through Tuesday. A few pop ups are possible Wednesday and there could be a shower or thunderstorm with the cold front on Thursday. That’s it as far as any rain chances are concerned.
There is no question of the oppressive nature of the weather for the next few days particularly Tuesday and Wednesday when the combination of temperatures between 90 and 95 and dew points in the 70s will make it feel like it is over 100 degrees. Hopefully everyone will find a way to stay cool.
A cold front that comes through Thursday will stall out just to our south for Friday and into the weekend. This at least eliminates the extreme heat and humidity conditions for Friday and the Labor Day weekend. However there is an issue in that the front won’t be that far away and that will put us at risk for clouds Friday and into the weekend and also the risk for some passing showers. We continue to hold on to the idea that the Labor Day holiday weekend will not be a washout. However there are going to be some risks along the way.
Even if we see another scenario of a warm from cold front combination it would seem that we will not go back to the extreme heat and humidity conditions we are seeing this week.
