First Alert Forecast: summer weather stays strong in September!

Labor Day has come and gone, but a summery high pressure system will remain in control of our weather this week. With it, all will experience heat and some will experience storms.

WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON: Beat goes on… partial sun, southwest breezes, afternoon highs mainly upper 80s and lower 90s, and heat index values cresting near or above 100. Storm chance: 30 - 40%.

WEEKEND OUTLOOK: The first weekend of September looks to stay summery. Daily highs: mainly upper 80s. Nightly lows: mainly lower 70s. Saturday storm chance: 20%. And for Sunday: 40 - 50%.

TROPICS: Tropical Storm Dolly will bring heavy rain to northeastern Mexico Wednesday. Elsewhere in the Atlantic Basin, new tropical storm development is unlikely Wednesday.
