The heat and humidity returned Monday behind a passing warm front. Dew points surged back to tropical levels Monday afternoon while area thermometers warmed quickly on southwest winds nearing and topping 90° for Labor Day. Heat and humidity will hold for much of the week potentially reaching 94° Wednesday. This could be the years hottest weather so far.

Check out the rainbow over Lake Monroe late Monday afternoon as a downpour departed. We captured this from our live streaming cam from Fourwinds Lakeside Inn.
The rain chances are very slim through Wednesday. Showers and storms will become more numerous and better organized as a cold front sags into the state late in the week. Coverage on the rain will reach its peak Friday ending early Saturday.
