Meteorological Summer ended August 31. The "Summer" in this regard was June, July, and August. Nonetheless while "Meteorological Fall" is upon us (Sep,Oct,Nov) it will be a warm start to this period of time!
A warm weather pattern continues across the eastern half of the country. High pressure across the Atlantic Ocean is giving us a south/west flow, drawing in higher temperatures/humidity locally. This will be the predominant weather setup for the next several days. Brief relief will come in via cool fronts from southeast Canada.
It will be hot again Tuesday with high temps in the 80s and muggy conditions. A cold front will move through Tuesday night, providing scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some storms may become severe with strong winds and even some hail. Heavy rain and lightning will also be local threats. Storms should hold off until after 3 p.m., lasting into the overnight hours as well. Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will be more comfortable and drier. Then Friday night into Saturday will rain at times with another cold front bringing cool weather for the upcoming weekend, drier Saturday afternoon and into Sunday.
