A bubble of high pressure over the Southeast is trying to maintain its grip on controlling the regional weather pattern, but it will eventually give way to increasingly unsettled conditions as we enter the Labor Day weekend.  This evening will feature a mostly clear sky with temperatures falling through the 80s and reaching the lower 70s by sunrise.  Overnight, scattered clouds may roll in from the northwest in advance of a cold front over the mid-Atlantic.  That feature, plus the upper-level disturbance over the Florida peninsula, will weaken the atmosphere enough to trigger developing showers and storms for most of Friday, especially with daytime heating.  Highs will climb back into the low to mid 90s.  Occasional rain and storms will remain in place over the Saturday-Sunday time frame.
