LABOR DAY:  The holiday is warm and stuffy, with mostly cloudy skies and a few showers or storms in spots.  It’s not an all day rain, but do be ready to heed indoors for a few while a shower passes.  Highs today hit the middle to upper 80s.  Keep the plans, just keep a watchful eye for rain.  Tonight, we drop to near 70° under partly cloudy skies.


NEXT FRONT:  We’re watching our next front roll in on Tuesday.  Ahead of it, it’s hot and sticky with scattered clouds.  Highs hit the upper 80s to near 90°.  Storms fire late, before fading overnight.  Some could be gusty with heavy rain.

A front will help fire storms for late Tuesday.

LATE WEEK:  Once the front clears, we do cool off a tad, but it’s short lived.  Expect highs in the middle 80s for Wednesday with sun. By Thursday and Friday we’re back to the upper 80s to near 90° respectively.  Another front approaches, which could park some showers or storms late Friday.


WEEKEND:  Saturday, the front works its way through.  Expect mostly cloudy skies with a chance for showers and storms.  Highs are in the middle 80s.  Sunday, the clouds slowly clear, and it’s cooler again.  Temps are in the upper 70s with a drop in humidity.  Enjoy!

Have a safe and happy holiday today!
