    Hot & Humid Week, Not as Hot or Humid for the Labor Day Weekend
    Unfortunately we have no real good chances of rain ahead-although I know everybody’s grass is getting a little on the crispy side. A few disturbances will move through the region giving us meager chances of rain with the best looking on Friday night. Today we saw temps in the mid 90s and it’s just the beginning of a heat wave. We have at least 3 more days to go. Except clear skies overnight with some areas of fog as temperatures fall into the 70s. We will start tomorrow with a mix of sun and clouds as temperatures once again rise into the lower 90s with plenty of humidity. A piece of energy will move out of the Ohio Valley tomorrow during peak heating hours bringing a chance of some showers and thunderstorms to the region. By Thursday, we are still looking at partly cloudy skies with just a chance of a stray shower/storm here or there in the afternoon. A backdoor cold front will begin to slide through the region on Friday night. Until then, increasing clouds on Friday will be the norm with temperatures topping out around 90 degrees. Showers and thunderstorms will accompany the frontal passage. I believe we could have a few showers/storms linger into early Saturday. Saturday will feature gradual clearing with temperatures in the mid 80s. We will have a touch of more comfortable air on Saturday and into Sunday behind the front.
