It's labor day and it may mean the end of summer to some but mother nature will continue to provide us with summer-like temperatures most of this week. No rain is expected today, in fact, not many clouds are expected today. Thanks to the position of our high pressure it will shut off the transport of subtropical moisture from the south.
Temperatures will run above average for most of the week but they do reach their peak on Wednesday with highs in the 80's and 90's for most lower valleys and possibly our last taste of 90's for the year. By Wednesday night the high pressure will return to Texas allowing southwesterly winds to pick back up and, in turn, bring back monsoonal moisture. Most of Thursday will remain free from showers but late in the day and especially going overnight into Friday morning showers will return for some areas.
Cooler air filters back into the area this weekend with temperatures returning to the 70's and 80's with partly cloudy skies. The monsoon push will stay with us through the weekend with heavy rains expected Saturday and Sunday as a pulse of energy works through the area.
