  • Dry conditions through the end of the week
  • Labor Day Weekend brings back the chance for *some* rain
  • The holiday weekend will NOT be a washout

REST OF THE WORK WEEK

High pressure stays parked for the next few days allowing us to stay dry and keep humidity on the lower end. If you have any outdoor plans that require rain-free days, the next few will be ideal to get them in! High temperatures will remain near seasonable in the 80s with low temperatures hovering in and around the 60s for most. Lots of sun is expected Thursday, but on Friday we will see some increasing clouds throughout the day.

Mainly sunny today with comfortable temperatures.

LABOR DAY WEEKEND

Right now we think it’s a safe bet to have activities planned outdoors, but keep eyes to the sky as a few showers are possible to arrive. A frontal system approaches our region by Sunday, plus a southerly flow enters the area both of these can help bring a few showers. Looks like this front will stall nearby on Monday which can still provide some spotty rain showers and isolated storms. Right now temperatures throughout the weekend will be in the 80s for most with lows in the 60s.

We increase our chances of storms as we head toward Monday.
