The trailing cold front will begin to stall out just north of the area tomorrow.  Because of that, the chance of showers and thunderstorms will persist through the day.  Current thinking the best chance is during the morning hours and late in the day.

Between showers, the sun will peak through the clouds and temperatures could top out near or at 90 for few spots in the city. In addition, it’ll be quite humid allowing heat indicies to possibly be around 95 in the middle in the afternoon for a few areas.

As the front is unwilling to budge through the next 48-72 hours, the chance of showers will exist through Thursday. It will be humid with temperatures in the mid 80s.

While is still far out in meteorological terms, we should be dry with temperatures in the mid to upper 80s for the Labor Day weekend.
