It will be hot and humid again today. The weak disturbance that caused the heavy rain yesterday is drifting out of the region, but we’ll see enough heat and humidity this afternoon to pop off a few showers and thunderstorms. This will be the case tomorrow as well. However, a back-door cold front is forecast to move into the region late tomorrow into Saturday. While this may kick off a few showers and storms, it will also cool things down. So we’ll see low 80s for both Saturday and Sunday. We’ll see mild/dry weather for Labor Day. Then we’ll see more nice weather early next week for the start of most Hampton Roads schools.
Tropical storm Fred is weakening over the eastern Atlantic and may be a depression by later this morning. It is expected to stay out to sea and fall apart. Another weak disturbance coming off of Africa may be able to form in the next few days as it moves generally west. Stay tuned.
