NBC29 Weather 6 PM

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - After a pleasant and dry stretch of days over the Labor Day weekend, we will quickly transition to more humid and unsettled days as we move ahead this week. High pressure over the region will start to move away and off the coast, more easterly winds will make for more humid conditions returning.

Wednesday more clouds and some occasional showers and a spotty storm. Temperatures will likely top out in the upper 70s to low 80s. Moisture from a an easterly wind and a stalled front off the coast and anther front approaching form the Ohio Valley will keep us with scattered showers and storms through the late week. It still appears a cold front close to the region will still keep us with a chance for a few more storms right through the weekend. Temperatures will be near or a little below average for the mid and late week, through the weekend.

In the far Eastern Atlantic there are now 2 Tropical Storms. Paulette and Rene, both of these storms are in a favorable environment for strengthening to hurricanes later this week, as they move westward. Its too early to know, if they will make it near the United States. We are currently in the peak month of the Hurricane Season and it has already been quite active.
