The latest Storm Tracker Forecast from Meteorologist Kevin Appleby.
Sunday featured increasing humidity with a good amount of sunshine with temperatures rising well into the 80s. Some clouds will move over our area tonight with a weak trough moving off the Great Lakes, which could produce a stray shower or two towards dawn Monday.
These clouds and high humidity levels will keep low temperatures elevated tonight, with a lot of us remaining in the 60s. Winds will be light and variable to calm at times, so we could also see some patchy valley fog once again.
The aforementioned stray shower chance does exist in the early morning hours of Labor Day, but we will dry out by noon with a mix of sun and clouds. Temperatures will be in the 80s to near 90 degrees, the first in a series of days that will make a run for that mark.
Looking ahead to Tuesday and Wednesday, the heat and humidity will be dialed up one more notch, giving us our best opportunities to reach the 90s across the Capital Region.
It’s Thursday when we will first feature the chance for a bit more organized shower and thunderstorm activity, particularly later in the day. By Friday, precipitation will be a little bit more widespread, which will also aid to make things a bit cooler, albeit still above average for this time of year.
For the upcoming weekend, we will be closer to average as some showers will linger. Though some disagreement exists with the speed of this storm, I expect Sunday to be the better day of the two. This cooling trend will continue into next week, with seasonable conditions expected.
