Late Summer-early Meteorological Autumn heat wave conditions are expected through mid-late week amid a subsidence regime of sinking air in the wake of western Atlantic tropical activity. Due to sinking air I have updated the forecast to reduce humidity, this will allow for significant day-to-night temperature spreads ( most pronounced amid mountain valleys ) and make heat tolerable until humidity increases along an initial front by next weekend into the middle of September ( current trend ).
