Tuesday Morning Weather: Warm, Humid Conditions Return

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

DayPlannerTuesday morning will start off cloudy with a shower possible in spots. Clouds will break for sunshine with warmer and increasingly humid air moving in throughout the day.

The heat and humidity peak Wednesday. Thermometers will hit 90 degrees for the first time since July 20, but just for a day. A cold front Thursday will bring a round of showers and storms and an end to the heat.

Meanwhile storms are churning things up in the Atlantic Ocean: Tropical Storm Humberto and Tropical Storm Gabrielle. Humberto is located well off the African Coast with winds of 65 mph and is forecast to become a hurricane in the next 24 to 48 hours, but will not pose a threat to the United States.

Gabrielle has regenerated and is currently 180 miles south of Bermuda with winds of 40 mph. Forecast tracks keep the storm well offshore and predict the storm will not post a threat to the East Coast, but we are in the height of hurricane season so named stories bear watching.

Extended forecast:

Tuesday: Chance for an early shower. Clouds break for some sun. Turning warmer and more humid.

Wednesday: Hot, hazy and humid. Summer is back. Upper 80s and low 90s inland. Mid to upper 80s along the shoreline.

Thursday: Very warm and humid with numerous showers and storms developing in the afternoon from west to east. High temperatures in the low to mid 80s.

Friday: Cooler and less humid. Partly to mostly sunny. High temperatures staying in the 60s.

Saturday: A mix of sun and clouds. Slight chance for a shower. High temperatures staying in the 60s.
