Labor Day weekend forecast looking great.

Temperatures overnight are going to fall down into the 40s and 50s with very dry air in place. It's a good chance to check out the stars if you're in an area that is dark. Readings will be in the 70s for Friday with plenty of sunshine. Humidity will continue to be low. Temperatures reach the low 80s on Saturday with more sunshine. It turns hot on Sunday as temperatures reach near 90°F along with more humidity. It's back to the cooler stuff for Labor Day with temperatures in the lower to Middle 70s. There's no sign of any significant rain although there could be a little shower Sunday night with the cooler air arriving. Have a great weekend!

Currently fellow, Anna Abraham, has a new story up today on the record breaking heatwave sweeping across China:

"Almost half of China has been affected by its strongest heatwave since 1961, when complete meteorological observation records began, according to the China Meteorological Administration.

Afflicting northwest, central, and southeast China, the heatwave began on June 13 and broke the 2013 heatwave record of 62 days on August 15. The National Meteorological Center (NMC) of China has issued 30 high-temperature red warnings since the start of the heatwave, with 12 consecutive days of red warnings. China employs a four-tier warning system with red warnings representing the most severe event.

Over 200 national weather observatories have registered extremely high temperatures, with 45 degrees C (115 degrees F) recorded in southwest China’s Chongqing city last week."
