Saturday afternoon, August 30, 2014
Forecaster: Ryan Stinnett

SOUPY SATURDAY & SUNDAY: One can certainly notice a different air mass in place over the state today. Moisture levels have returned as evident by our dew points back into the 70s. It is very warm and muggy outside this afternoon, and this air mass will stick around. Showers and storms will become widespread and numerous the rest of today. Highs will generally be around the 90 degree mark. Heading into tomorrow, it will be very similar to today, but we should see a bit less convection as the upper-level lift pulls away from the state and we see a bit drier air move into the state.

LABOR DAY: On Monday, expect a mix of sun and clouds with the risk of scattered, mainly afternoon and evening showers and storms. The convection will not be as widespread as today, but be prepared to dodge a few showers if you have any outdoor plans. Afternoon highs should be in the lower 90s.
