The worst of the heat is over, but today will still be quite warm and humid. High pressure is building into New England and that will swing a backdoor cold front into our region leading to scattered showers and a few thunderstorms this afternoon and evening. The most likely timing will be after 1pm and before 9p.m. There is a low risk that the storms will be severe. Behind the front, our winds will come in off the Atlantic. That will bring cooler temperatures and some clouds. Saturday morning could be rather cloudy with more sunshine in the afternoon. Temperatures will be in the low 80s or so depending on how much sunshine eventually breaks out. Sunday looks brighter in the metro. Mainly Sunny and seasonable in the low to mid 80s. Temperatures start to warm back up on Labor Day and into next week in the upper 80s to low 90s. The beaches look pretty good overall. There may be added clouds here both days, but rain chances are low. Upper 70s on Saturday to lower 80s on Labor Day. Have a safe and Happy Holiday Weekend everyone!!For the latest weather headlines, stay with ABC 7 News and wjla.com.
