It's been a brutal fall so far, temperatures have consistently come in well above average and the summer humidity just won't seem to leave.
We can seek solace though that it's not just us, the rest of the southeast has been stuck in an impressive heat wave with temperatures in Tennessee, Alabama, and Georgia pushing close to 100.
The night is darkest before the dawn so they say, and after another summery weekend dawn will arrive in the form of a cold front.
So as you push through the heat wondering if cool air even exists anymore just remember that next week things are shaping up to feel much better this upcoming week.
In the meantime it's back into the 90s with enough moisture to force the heat index close to (if not at) 100 degrees through Thursday afternoon.
This time the combination of heat and humidity will spark a few showers in the late afternoon, mostly for areas along and north of the interstate.
There's little change in the pattern through the weekend, but clouds move in on Monday indicating that the front is arriving.
Showers and storms will be likely on Monday but when we wake up Tuesday we'll be treated to crisp, cool air which should last through the first half of the week at least.
