SUNDAY:  Expect clearing skies through the day. There will still be a chance of an isolated lingering shower or t-shower. By Sunday PM, the best chance of a shower or t-shower will shift south of Kent Co.  Highs Sunday will be near 80 degrees,

NEXT WEEK   Warm to hot weather is on the way for next week with high temperatures in the mid 80s to near 90 from Monday thru Friday.  The chance of catching a mainly afternoon/evening t-shower each day is about 20% (best chance inland).  So, most of the time it will be dry.  Humidity levels will come up a little.  Winds will be light from the southeast to southwest for most all of the week.  The warm weather should stick around thru the Labor Day Holiday Weekend.

SEPTEMBER PREVIEW   The overall pattern will likely remain warm through much of September, with  temperatures likely to run 2 to 5 degrees warmer than average during the month (much of the warmth coming in the first 10 days of the month).
