More Heat And Humidity
Updated by KSFY Meteorologist Phil Schreck on Wednesday, September 2 at 9:45 PM
Sunshine, heat and humidity...that's what's in store again for Thursday. Look for highs in the middle to upper 80s in the east and in the middle to upper 90s west of the James River.
It won't be quite as warm on Friday but we'll still have above normal highs in the middle to upper 80s along with scattered storms.
Storm chances will remain with us on Saturday and Sunday but Labor Day is shaping up nicely with sunshine and temperatures topping out mainly in the 70s.

If the actual heat isn't enough, the dew point will soar to near 70 degrees, yanking the heat index well into the 90s in most places.
