The great weather stretches into the weekend ahead. Our little Fall-like tease though will be a thing of the past as high temperatures push toward 90 degrees Saturday, Sunday and even the first full day of Autumn Monday.

Dry conditions will prevail with tons of sunshine on both days as high pressure sits just off to our south pumping in southwesterly flow. Humidity will also be on the increase Sunday into Monday before a weak cold front drifts through the area.

This front will be our only chance for rain over the next several days ahead and may not even be a guaranteed for many neighborhoods. If we don't see the rain we will continue our pace as the second driest September on record.

Long range trends agree with that as well with below average rainfall chances through the beginning of October making for issues when it comes to the Fall leaf color season. The tropics don't even look to help us out as Hurricane Jerry looks to stay well out sea and the remnants of Imelda looks to stay way west of the area.

Beyond Monday the temperatures look to remain above average with highs in the 80s and lows in the 60s. The next chance of rain beyond Monday arrives later in the week.
