After a muggy and stormy Labor Day, much of the East will be refreshed with lowering humidity through midweek.

However, in the wake of the front bringing these storms, low humidity will arrive in the region by the evening.
Dew points throughout the weekend were in the upper 60s to lower 70s across the Northeast, but after the passing of the front, dew points will be in the 50s along the coast and in the 40s over parts of the interior. Over a large part of the South, dew point temperatures will drop into the 60s.
The mid-Atlantic down through much of the Southeast will be feeling pleasant with at least some sunshine through Wednesday.
This high pressure will remain over the East for much of the week from Maine to the Carolinas. Farther south, the tail end of the front will linger along the Gulf Coast and bring showers and thunderstorms.
Looking forward to the coming weekend, another front will push through the Northeast. This will bring the chance for showers and thunderstorms and will be followed by even cooler air.
