A few more storms today. Hot and muggy Labor Day.

Posted: Updated:

 (WRCB) - Good Sunday.  At least it won't rain for your Labor Day, but the heat and humidity will be somewhat stifling.

Highs will reach the upper 80s this afternoon under mostly cloudy skies.  We will see a few scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon.  None are expected to be severe.  We are actually finishing August with pretty average rainfall for the month.  As of yesterday, we had 3.63" on the ground.  The average is 3.38.  With that said, for the year, we still are running a rainfall deficit of -6.68"  

For Labor Day, it is all about the heat and humidity.  The average high for this time of year is 87.  We will soar to 93 in the afternoon with a heat index of about 98.  We will between weather systems so the chance for rain Labor Day is less than 20%.

The start of September will be unseasonably hot and humid.  The average high is 87.  All next week highs will be in the low 90s with the heat index near 100.  We will also have a few isolated storms popping up each afternoon next week.
