WEATHER NEWS: PM Update: Sultry summer weather continues on Sunday


The best weather will be front-loaded on this holiday weekend. High pressure will slowly start to break down over the next 36 to 48 hours, and as it does, cloud cover and shower chances will increase. It won’t happen fast enough to affect Sunday’s weather too much, with another hot and humid day on tap. But Monday’s weather will certainly be a lot more showery and unsettled, so get your outdoor plans in Sunday if you can.

Tomorrow (Sunday): We’ll have mostly sunny skies to start, with more clouds than sun by the afternoon. Depending on just how much sunshine we get, high temperatures will top out right around 90 degrees with high humidity levels. There’s just a slight chance at an isolated shower or two late in the afternoon. It will be mostly cloudy with increasing shower chances Sunday night with low temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s.
