True to summer, it stayed muggy and warm this evening, and tonight won't be any exception. An easterly breeze will help push in some extra moisture from the Atlantic. This will allow patchy fog to develop overnight and some pesky low cloud cover that will stick around for the first part of our Sunday. The farther west you live, the clearer you will stay (especially west of the Blue Ridge Mountains). The farther east you live (predominantly east of I-95) the quicker you will cloud up tonight and the longer they will stick around Sunday morning. Clouds should fade out and full sunshine will take over for just about everyone by late morning. It will be hot again Sunday with highs near 90°.
By Monday, higher humidity will make it feel a little more uncomfortable with feels like temperatures near 100°. The main story to start the work week is the continued heat. A few thunderstorms are expected to develop late Monday and there's a slim chance they'll get closer to the Metro after sunset. Aside from that, Monday will be dry. Tuesday brings a slightly better chance for a spotty thundershower and it looks like our best chance will be Wednesday. The StormWatch7 team will continue to monitor the conditions and bring you the very latest.
Another welcome cool down will start for us on Thursday, but you'll really feel the difference Friday and Saturday. Looking longer range into our Labor Day weekend, at this point things do look nice, but the heat starts building back Sunday and Monday!
