Forecast: Warm Labor Day With Midweek Showers Ahead

This article is more than 3 years old.

I can't tell you how many more beach days there are this year, but the next couple are definitely some of the last. With abundant sunshine, many areas will easily eclipse the 80 mark today.  Tomorrow looks even warmer with highs in the mid-80s and a lot more humidity for the afternoon.

A cold front will put an end to the warmth for Wednesday, but not the humidity. Until this front is able to clear the coast later Thursday it's going to feel quite sticky around here with abundant moisture.  As showers arrive Tuesday evening, they stay in the forecast through Thursday.  There could be some heavy downpours during this time as well.

Eventually late this week dry air and seasonable temperatures return.

Irma continues to move west towards the Lesser Antilles.  From there it should continue heading in a direction closer to the Bahamas.  Impact to the United States mainland isn't definitive, but all interests should stay tuned to the latest forecasts.
