EVENING: Hot and humid. Temperatures near 90.

TONIGHT: Warm and humid. Low 74.

WEDNESDAY: Sunny & Hot, Record Heat Continues. Hi 97.

What a way to kick off September! Labor Day reached a new record high of 97 and Tuesday peaked at 94 which tied the old record set in 2015. We have a chance to tie another record high on Wednesday with a forecast high of 96!

Thursday will also reach the lower 90s before we start to see an increasing chance for showers and storms heading into the weekend. Rain has been limited for much of the Midstate so rain is certainly welcome to many. Storm chances will be hit-or-miss Thursday and Friday, with better chances for showers and storms Saturday and Sunday. The weekend is not going to be a washout, but passing midday storms will be something we’ll need to watch if any outdoor plans are scheduled.
