Today the weather for Derby day was absolutely fantastic as we saw nothing but sunshine for most of the day and temperatures which warmed up to around 80° for most. What you noticed was the low humidity. It felt wonderful and comfortable as the air was much drier than it has been for the past couple of weeks. We will continue the dry air trend as we move through the next few days leading up to and through Labor day, but a bit of humidity will return as we move into next work week. Look for highs into the mid 80s for Monday with plenty of sunshine still. Rain chances remain very low, too.
Labor Day may be the unofficial end to summer, but another round of heat returns next week as the temperatures will reach the upper 80s and potentially even get into the low 90s. Enjoy that bit of heat, because by next weekend, we'll take a big drop back down to the 70s...proving fall is here.
