SUN or peeks of sun will fuel daily temperature trips to the 80s for most or all of the next seven days. Muggy 70s are the target for morning lows early in the period; the long September nights ought to support a few late-week dips into the 60s.

STORMS and showers will dot the interactive radar on your WECT Weather App. Rain odds of 30% Wednesday, 40-50% Thursday, 20% Friday, and 10% Saturday through Monday. So, there will be lots of dry time through the period.
