The Labor Day weekend is here! Can you believe we’ve made it to the unofficial end of summer? Ironically, it’s taken all summer long to get a sustained amount of heat to build into the region. The warm and humid conditions will continue all weekend long and rain chances will be going up by Monday as a cold front approaches. Here is the latest First Alert Forecast:
Saturday: Skies will be partly cloudy and there is just a 10% chance of an isolated afternoon storm. High temperatures will be in the mid 90s but the heat index will make it feel like the low 100s. It should be a good day to hibernate indoors and watch college football!
Sunday: Another day of sun & clouds is expected but the chance of rain will be slightly higher at 20%. Plan on afternoon highs in the low to mid 90s..
Labor Day: A cold front will move into the area and it will provide a better opportunity for scattered showers and storms. The chance of rain is expected to be in the 30% to 40% range. Highs should be in the low 90s.
Tuesday: The cold front may keep a few lingering showers & storms in our region during the first half of the day but dry air and sunshine will win out during the afternoon hours. We’ll top out around 90.
Wednesday – Friday: High pressure builds in again and that means clear skies will dominate for a nice stretch of days. Highs will be in the 80s while overnight lows fall back into the 60s.
