NOTE: On this date 12 years ago Hurricane Irene caused massive flooding in our area with 9.27″ of rain falling on August 27th into the 28th.
High pressure now located north of the Great Lakes will build into our area giving us a very pleasant late August day with near seasonable temperatures, low humidity and plenty of sunshine.
The high pressure will move to our north on Monday with an onshore flow, with more clouds high temperatures will be a few degrees lower than today.
A frontal system will give us a chance of showers on Tuesday. Meanwhile Hurricane Franklin will move northeast well off our shores but it should give the coastal areas an increase in swells along with the chance of dangerous rip currents.
High pressure will dominate our weather Wednesday through Friday with seasonably mild temperatures along with low humidity.
At this point the Labor Day weekend looks to be dry and warm with most high temperatures in the middle 80s.
