August heat and humidity lingers into September

The late summer weather does not show any signs of giving into fall as we see the hottest temperatures of the year. This is really the only sustained heat wave we’ve seen all summer with highs each day in the upper 80s to near 90°. This pattern will hold on through at least the Labor Day holiday.

We will also see some scattered showers and storms developing later today and tonight across the region. These will mostly be the hit and miss variety, though we could see some brief heavy downpours in some areas.

The highest heat will be reserved for the holiday weekend as Sunday and Monday will see temperatures stretched into the lower 90s, which is more than 10 degrees warmer than we usually see this time of year.
