From Storm Team 5…
Low level clouds and fog will begin to burn off through the mid morning, leaving a glance for some sun for the first hours of the day. Heat and thick humidity will begin to build in this afternoon as our highs top out in the middle 80s. Dew points will be in the 70s.
During the late afternoon and evening an increasing chance for thunderstorms will come about, and an embedded storm or two in this line of showers could become strong or severe with threats of gusty winds and hail.

Tonight, scattered showers and thunderstorms will bring more wet weather and a threat for torrential rainfall. Otherwise, overcast skies will be out and about with high humidity and temperatures only falling off into the lower 70s.
Monday, muggy weather sticks with us and there may be a lingering shower or storm into the morning hours, but most of the day should be dry. Temperatures will stay mild with highs in the middle 80s. The atmosphere reloads in the afternoon, and another line of storms will approach from the northwest in the evening. A slight risk of severe storms is anticipated later in the day.
Tuesday, more humid and warm weather can be expected as highs climb back into the mid 80s. A cold front dives in mid-day, and bring us yet another chance for rain and a few storms.
Rain totals could become rather impressive over the next three days. Models are indicating that a few communities could could receive 2″ to 4″ within 72 hours, and that could be turn out to be locally higher in some cases with repeat thunderstorms.
Raining buckets! Early runs from our in-house forecast model showing the POTENTIAL for 2″ – 3″ of rain or higher over the next 48 hours.

Temperatures turn much cooler behind that front on Wednesday. Skies will slowly decrease the cloud cover, especially later in the day, and temperatures will only make it to around 70 degrees.
Thursday, a nice day as sunshine returns in full force, with afternoon highs a little warmer in the middle 70s.
Late Friday night into Saturday will be another chance for showers and thunderstorms to develop as we work into the Labor Day holiday weekend. Temperatures will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s both days.
