It feels like the heart of summer, but the Labor Day weekend is traditionally considered the end of the season.

The temperature was about 80 degrees Sunday afternoon, with humidity from 79 to 90 percent, making it feel a couple degrees warmer.

The weather may have kept some people indoors, but the Allegheny River got plenty of use.

Among those recreating Sunday were Dakota Sliter and Taylor Kraft.

For a while, their kayaks were surrounded by ducks looking for handouts near Point Park.

According to the National Weather Service out of State College, it will be hot again Monday, with a high near 87.

There could be isolated thunderstorms between 2 and 8 p.m., according to the forecast.
