Heat, humidity build up for start of workweek across the Hudson Valley; chance for showers Tuesday

WHAT’S NEW: Mainly dry, mild and humid conditions for tonight with more clouds that will fill in overnight.
WHAT'S NEXT: The heat and humidity will gradually build for the beginning of the week making it feel very warm to near hot and certainly humid. By Tuesday night a front comes through and may give us a shower or storm. The rain chances for Tuesday night as well as for overnight Tuesday into early Wednesday morning are not very impressive for relieving the drought much. We can look forward to a comfortable start to September with lower humidity, seasonable warmth and lots of sunshine!
