Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 7:38 p.m. Sept. 4, 2015

The storms that blossomed in the heat and humidity of Friday afternoon have diminished early Friday night. While most communities will remain rain-free for the bulk of the night, we will keep the risk of an isolated shower or storm in the forecast since there is a cold front marching southward into our area. Regardless, this front will keep a considerable amount of cloud cover around Friday night.

With the atmosphere still pretty moist and uncomfortable, we may see some patchy fog develop overnight, especially in communities that received rainfall Friday. This will lead to a gray start to the day Saturday but, in the wake of the front, the sky will brighten.

The best news of all is that cooler and less humid air will filter into the region on northeasterly breezes. Highs will only be in the lower to middle 80s which is seasonable for early September. Sunday will bring stellar weather as a high pressure cell settles into the Mid-Atlantic States. We will enjoy glorious sunshine with pleasant temperatures in the middle 80s and comfortable humidity.

By Labor Day, however, the heat and humidity will return as the high pressure cell shifts eastward and our winds become southerly. With the help of sunshine, temperatures will zoom to near 90 degrees by afternoon. Unfortunately, the hot and humid weather will persist for much of the shortened work week.

The weather at the Delmarva Beaches looks great this weekend with sunshine and cooler, more-comfortable conditions. However, if your travels take you to Virginia Beach or North Carolina’s Outer Banks which will be closer to a stalled front, you will have to deal with more clouds and the risk of a shower Sunday.

Have a safe and enjoyable weekend!
