Happy back-to-school, and back-to-work after the Labor Day holiday! Today will be our hottest day of the week, with afternoon highs in the upper 90s and a heat index of 100°-105°.   Since it’s the first day of school for many, make sure your kids are dressed for the hot and humid weather.

A “cool” front will pass through the region overnight, with a few scattered storms possible from late this afternoon through the early morning hours of Wednesday.  As the front settles south, most locations will be dry Wednesday, but a few isolated storms may pop up across Southside Virginia during the afternoon.

Thursday and Friday will be hot days, with afternoon temperatures not far from 90°.   A stronger front will approach the area this weekend, offering a greater chance of scattered thunderstorms.  Temperatures will finally come down more substantially behind this front, averaging in the low 80s by next Monday.

In the tropics, we have a new tropical storm named Dolly approaching east-central Mexico.  It is expected to produce very heavy rain along the Mexican coast, with the threat of flash floods and mud slides in areas of mountainous terrain.  You can track the storm and anything else that develops in the tropics with our CBS 6 Hurricane Tracker.
