NEXT WEEK Warm to hot weather is on the way for next week with high temperatures in the mid 80s to near 90 from Monday thru Friday. The chance of catching a mainly afternoon/evening t-shower each day is about 20% (best chance inland). So, most of the time it will be dry. Humidity levels will come up a little. Winds will be light from the southeast to southwest for most all of the week. The warm weather should stick around thru the Labor Day Holiday Weekend.
SEPTEMBER PREVIEW The overall pattern will likely remain warm through much of September, with temperatures likely to run 2 to 5 degrees warmer than average during the month (much of the warmth coming in the first 10 days of the month).
