Showers and storms move in to break the heat

Hot temperatures into the Labor Day weekend

A cold front brings showers and storms to squelch the heat but the relief will be short lived.

Temperatures will push towards the 90 degree mark today before a cool boundary from the north moves through the Tri-State producing scattered showers and thunderstorms.

I expect to see a few isolated storms developing ahead of the system early afternoon with more widespread showers and storms developing during the evening commute.

With the intense heating and moist atmosphere, a few strong storms could develop but widespread severe storms are not forecast. As with all approaching systems, timing could change so just be vigilant.

Behind the system, temperatures will fall off a few degrees Thursday with a drier air mass. The relief though will be brief as highs will go back to the 90s for the start of the Labor Day Holiday weekend.
