Heat and humidity will be the rule of thumb this week, despite the start of September. Temperatures are expected to be above average. High humidity will allow mainly afternoon and or evening showers and thunderstorms to develop each day, but no widespread soaking rains are expected as there won't be any organized storm systems affecting our area. However, there will be a couple of weak fronts that should move into or near the CSRA, helping rain chances to inch up a bit in the middle of the week and again over the weekend.
