LABOR DAY WEEKEND LOOKS MOSTLY DRY
FEW SHOWERS AND T-STORMS CAN'T BE RULED OUT
SEVERE THREAT LOW
WARM AND HUMID THROUGH MID-WEEK
Overnight: Partly cloudy with patchy fog late. Lows 59-65. Light wind.
Saturday: Mostly to partly sunny. A few scattered afternoon thundershowers around. Highs 79-86. East wind 10 mph or less.
Saturday Night: Few showers possible, as well as late night fog. Partly cloudy. Lows 57-63. Light wind.
Sunday: Mostly to partly sunny and warm. Few afternoon thundershowers. Highs 79-86. Southeast wind 5-10 mph.
Summertime heat and humidity will continue through the Labor Day weekend. This will produce a daily chance (around 30 to 40%) of an afternoon/early evening thundershower through early next week. Any shower that forms may become heavy and not move very fast. So, where it does rain, high rainfall totals in little time are possible. But many areas will remain dry. Keep in mind that no day looks to be a washout, but have a backup plan should a shower or storm interrupt your outdoor festivities.
With high pressure nearby, fog may form in the early mornings due to calm conditions, light wind, and little cloud cover. Be alert for that each morning especially near waterways, valleys, and areas where it rained the previous day.
Early next week a very slow-moving cold front looms off towards the west. With little push to guide it towards our region, the weather pattern remains in repeat mode for our area through Wednesday. By later next week, the front inches closer to the area, and provides us with a better chance of rain and cooler temperatures.
Recap: Highs in the upper 70s to mid 80s Saturday through next week. Lows in the 60s.
Our average high is 83°, low 59°.
