We enter into the holiday weekend of course with the expectation of great weekend. Come on, it is the last "hoorah" before Fall which is only 23 days away.
This Labor Day holiday weekend like so many in the past will feature a chance at showers and storms. Now it won't be a washout by any means, but you may want to plan accordingly especially during the afternoon and evening hours as this is when the storm chances will be at their highest.
A stalled frontal boundary plus increased humidity values make for the perfect ingredients when it comes to showers and storms. Severe weather does not look to be a factor this go around but locally heavy rainfall cannot be ruled since storms will be slow moving.
Right now Saturday looks to be the worst day compared to Sunday and Monday as the front fades over the region. The mini cool-down will also come to an end come Labor Day as temperatures push back into the 90s. More heat and humidity can be expected for students heading back to school next week as well. Things also look drier at this point with a renewed area of high pressure nearby.
Long range indications show the heat breaking and another taste of Fall for the second week of September.
Grab the umbrellas but don't cancel the plans as we soak up what's left of this quick Summer. Yes it has been rainy but it looks like the last few weeks should fair on the drier side of things. Just think Fall and then the dreaded four letter word that everyone loves "snow" are right around the corner.
