Relief from sticky and stormy conditions is headed to the Midwest, Northeast and mid-Atlantic.
Drier and less humid air will spend Labor Day through Wednesday sweeping in a west to east fashion from the Midwest to the Northeast and mid-Atlantic.
Fargo, N.D., and Minneapolis first noticed a reduction in storminess and humidity on Sunday. Kansas City, Chicago and Detroit experienced relief on Labor Day.
St. Louis and Cincinnati's humidity levels fell Monday afternoon and evening. The same circumstance also happened in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York City 24 hours later, on Tuesday.
Wednesday is when the steamy air will finally be gone from Portland, Boston and southward to Richmond, Va. The less humid air may even work its way into Atlanta this day, but will stop short of reaching the Gulf Coast.
The reduction in humidity will also be accompanied by temperatures returning to values that are more typical of early September.
Locally drenching and gusty showers and thunderstorms will rattle the East every day prior to the less humid air's arrival. Much to the demise of those with outdoor plans, Labor Day proved to be one of the most active days in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic.
Once the steamy air leaves, its quick return is not anticipated. The coolest air mass since the spring may instead dive into the Northeast late in the week.
