It’s the last day of summer and it sure feels like it today! Temperatures will climb to the upper 80s to near 90 degrees into this afternoon. Expect it to feel even warmer when you factor in the humidity levels. Even though today will be toasty, cooler and less humid air is on the way! A cold front will begin to push in from the west into this afternoon/evening and will bring in rain and storms along with. A few storms could be on the strong side and could be capable of producing gusty winds, heavy rain, and lightning. Most of the rain will likely begin to taper off around midnight as the front begins to clear the area to the east.

Get excited because it’s going to feel so nice out for the first day of fall tomorrow! Drier and cooler air will filter in behind the front. Temperatures will likely top out only in the upper 70s tomorrow afternoon with low humidity and plenty of sunshine. Cool and refreshing conditions are expected into Wednesday night/Thursday morning with lows in the 50s.

These conditions will stick around with us through the rest of the work week! We will turn a tad warmer into the weekend with temperatures back in the lower and middle 80s, but humidity levels will still be tolerable. Dry and sunny conditions will also persist during this time.
