An absolutely glorious day to kick start the holiday weekend! Unfortunately, the dry, tranquil weather won't last for much longer. Overnight clouds will increase, as humidity levels start to climb a bit. With added cloud cover and moisture, lows won't be quite as cool as last night. More clouds than sun expected Saturday with highs in the mid 80s and higher humidity.

A warm front will lift north of our area Sunday allowing temperatures to really soar. Highs both Sunday and Labor Day Monday will reach the lower 90s, but will feel more like the mid 90s when you factor in the humidity. Partly sunny skies are expected both days with a late day threat of showers and storms. Not everyone will see wet weather; however, you'll want to remain weather-aware if your plans take you outdoors. It will remain hot and quite humid to kick start the new work and school week on Tuesday with additional chances for afternoon and evening showers and storms.
