Chief Meteorologist Patrick Rockey’s First Warning Forecast

If you are looking forward to pulling out your sweaters, I have bad news. Our little taste of fall will be coming to an end pretty quickly.

Many of us woke up to temperatures in the 50s on Friday morning. And we can expect more 50s on Saturday morning. But the trend after that is for increasing heat and humidity.

But Saturday is looking like a pretty pleasant day with partly cloudy skies and high temperatures climbing into the lower 80s.

High pressure will continue to dominate our weather and that means mainly dry conditions all the way through Labor Day weekend.

However, we will see an increase in clouds on Sunday along with an increase in temperatures as a weak cold front approaches the region.

Expect high temperatures on Sunday back in the mid 80s and mid-to-upper 80s for Labor Day on Monday.

We expect that your Labor Day picnic will be dry. However, we are forecasting a 20% chance for a pop-up shower or thunderstorm.

Tuesday and Wednesday bring a return to hot summer weather with highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s and heat index values near 100 degrees.

But another cold front brings more relief Thursday and Friday.
