Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

Mother Nature just hit the reset button! After a week of hot and steamy weather, humidity levels and temperatures plunged behind a cold front overnight. And it does look like we will enjoy some milder, dry weather through most of the holiday weekend.

On Friday morning, some inland areas will wake up to temperatures in the 50s! Most of us will be in the low-to-mid 60s and we will enjoy plenty of sunshine throughout the day. Expect high temperatures on Friday in the upper 70s and lower 80s.

Saturday will be a little bit warmer under partly cloudy skies and Sunday we will get back to temperatures a little above normal. But our humidity levels should still be pretty comfortable for the second half of the weekend.

For Labor Day itself on Monday we will climb into the mid-to-upper 80s with about a 20% chance for a stray shower or a thunderstorm.

Most kids head back to school next week and it does look like it’s going to be a warm and dry one. Expect Temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday in the upper 80s and lower 90s with heat index values near 100° again.
