Weather from NBC Storm Team 4 — Updated 7:43 p.m. Sept. 1, 2015
A persistent ridge of high pressure will keep a late season heat wave going for most of the rest of the workweek with few chances for anything more than isolated thunderstorms in the late day hours, and most of those chances will be confined to the higher elevations near the Blue Ridge. A weak cold front will move in starting Friday into Saturday and bring with it more cloud cover, more seasonable temperatures, and a better chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms.

Temperatures in the low 80s then upper 70s.
TUESDAY NIGHT: Mostly clear. Hazy, warm, and muggy.
