Welcome to September. It's going to feel more like August, at least for the first few days.
Expect high temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday in the lower 90s under partly cloudy skies. We'll have a slight chance for a shower or storm on Thursday as a cold front moves in.
Behind that cold front, temperatures and humidity levels will drop. Expect highs in the mid 80s on Friday and low to mid 80s as we had through the long holiday weekend. We will hold onto a slight chance for a shower storm, especially on Saturday.
