A southerly breeze flow will continue over the holiday weekend. With it, expect more moisture and increased shower and storm chances by Labor Day itself. A cool front will deliver a push of slightly drier air by the middle of next week.
SUNDAY: A little hotter and a bit more humid than the weather we have seen over the last few days. Look for partly sunny skies and highs in the upper 80's. There could be a few spotty or isolated showers or thunderstorms during the afternoon. For Sunday night we'll continue to see an isolated t-storm chance with lows in the low 70's.
LABOR DAY AND TUESDAY FORECAST: An approaching cool front will raise the shower and thunderstorm chances through the period into the (40%-50%) range otherwise look for a mix of sun and clouds. Some storms could be marginally severe and could produce some localized heavy rainfall totals. Both days will be hot and humid with highs just shy of 90 and overnight lows in the low in the low to mid 70's.
WEDNESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY FORECAST: Great! Behind the cool front look for sunny to mostly sunny days, lower humidity, and a slight cool down. Highs will be in the mid 80's and lows will be in the upper 60's. We will leave a few more clouds and a slim rain chance (10%) on Wednesday.
TROPICAL WAVE NEAR THE LEEWARD ISLANDS: A tropical wave of low pressure is about 100 miles east of the Lesser Antilles as of Sunday afternoon. The National Hurricane Center rates it as having 50% chance of developing into a tropical cyclone over the next five days. We'll watch it very closely as it pushes toward the Caribbean.
