You’ve probably noticed the increase in humidity and it’s going to be rather muggy during the coming week. Overnight, skies will be partly cloudy with low temperatures in the upper 60s and low 70s.
Tomorrow will feature partly sunny skies, and it will be quite hot and humid. There will be a few scattered afternoon storms developing to the west, and one or two may sneak into the metro area during the evening. Highs will be in the low to mid 90s, with a heat index in the upper 90s to around 100°. More of the same is on tap for Labor Day with a mix of sun and clouds, along with the risk of an afternoon storm or two popping up.
Due to the very scattered nature of the thunderstorms, many locations will get through the entire holiday weekend without any rain. However, where storms pop up, the high humidity will allow for localized heavy rain.
It will stay very hot and humid Tuesday and Wednesday, with afternoon highs in the low to mid 90s, and a heat index close to 100°. A “cool” front will pass through the region late Wednesday, potentially triggering a few scattered afternoon storms and bring a very slight drop in the heat and humidity for the end of the week.
In the tropics, there are no current named storms in either the Atlantic or Pacific. A weak disturbance is in the Caribbean Sea, and no significant development is expected over the weekend. You can track everything happening in the tropics with our CBS 6 Hurricane Tracker.
