[gtxvideo vid=”SLJuNWHn” playlist=”” pid=”wMQlYtLM” thumb=”″ vtitle=”Weathercast 10.flv”]


Weather Update – 11:00 p.m. Monday

Skies will become mostly clear tonight with light winds from the south. Temperatures will drop to the lower and middle 70s at the coolest point of the night with mainly rain-free conditions expected after sunset. The post-Labor Day weather forecast remains hot and humid, but if you’re looking for another dose of “cooler” weather, the weekend forecast has something to look forward to.

Expect another hot and humid day like we had today with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies. Isolated showers and thunderstorms are possible though, like today, most of the rain should stay west of the Mississippi River. Temperatures will peak in the lower to middle 90s tomorrow afternoon with the humidity making it feel like upper 90s to near 100°F at the hottest point of the day.

Similar heat and humidity is forecast for Wednesday but the chance for rain increases slightly on Thursday. Friday looks mainly dry right now other than a possibility for isolated showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. A weak cold front will come in this weekend bringing a more likely chance for rain on Saturday with cooler weather to follow Saturday night and Sunday. Stay with the VIPIR 7 Storm Team for updates to the forecast!

Have a great rest of your Labor Day!

TROPICAL WEATHER UPDATE – – – 10:45 p.m. CDT September 5, 2016

At 10:00 p.m. CDT, Post-Tropical Cyclone Hermine, was located about 120 miles south-southeast of Montauk, NY. The storm is currently moving west-northwest at mph with maximum sustained winds of 65 mph. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the coast of Long Island from Fire Island Inlet to Port Jefferson Harbor, New Haven to Sagamore Beach, Block Island, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

From the National Hurricane Center:


WIND: Tropical storm conditions will continue to spread over portions of the warning area later today and tonight.

STORM SURGE: The combination of a storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. Along the immediate coastline, the surge will be accompanied by large and dangerous waves.

RAINFALL: Hermine will produce total rain accumulations of 1 to 2 inches across eastern Massachusetts, including Cape Cod and the offshore islands, through Wednesday.

SURF: Large waves generated by Hermine will affect the U.S. east coast from the mid-Atlantic states through New England. These waves are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions, and significant beach erosion. Please consult products from your local weather office.
