Say goodbye to the cooler mornings we were waking up to this week.  Humidity will be increasing tonight and Saturday.  That means most of us will stay in the 70s overnight, and it will feel muggier on Saturday.  We’ll see more cloud cover than sunshine Saturday afternoon with scattered storms throughout the day.  Isolated activity will be possible in the morning, and storm coverage will be most widespread for the late afternoon.  It won’t be a total washout, but you may have to stay inside for a couple hours to allow storms to pass.  Heavy rain possible in the more intense storms. 


Isolated showers may continue into the night.  In general, storms will diminish after sunset.  I’d expect to see more breaks in the clouds on Sunday compared to Saturday.  Scattered storms should still develop.  Highs will top out in the upper 80s to near 90 both days this weekend.  Storm chances are lower on Labor Day.  Starting with Monday and continuing all week, it will feel like typical summer weather in the Valley.  Hot and humid with highs in the low to mid 90s and isolated afternoon storms.  Lows should be in the low 70s.  Even though many consider Labor Day the unofficial end to summer, the summer-time weather will continue all next week.

Have a nice night.
