It's impossible to top the perfect weather we had this weekend so Mother Nature isn't even going to try. The thick morning cloud layer is thinning a bit for lunch but more clouds are expected this afternoon as a warm front approaches the region. Scattered shower and thunderstorms are possible late this afternoon but, because the atmosphere needs to get juicy with humidity, the better chance of rain is late this evening. This afternoon's high will be in the low 80s.

As the humidity builds late this evening an upper level disturbance will pass overhead, leading to a really good chance of rain right around midnight. Don't be surprised if you're awoken by a thunderstorm. The chance of rain will taper off, but won't go away, tomorrow morning as the warm front moves north of the city. With a warm front to our north we should warm to the mid to upper 80s on Tuesday. The city proper might even reach 90 degrees.

A slow-moving cold front comes into play late Tuesday night. Expect scattered showers and thunderstorms from then until the front passes on Wednesday night. Behind that front, and just in time for the Labor Day weekend, plenty of sun and late summer warmth. It looks like the daily highs will climb from the low 80s on Thursday to the upper 80s on Sunday.
