Rain Chances Build over Holiday Weekend

We’re kicking off the big holiday weekend with some Saturday morning sunshine. Saturday could very well be the nicest of the three days this weekend if you are still wanting one last taste of summer. High temperatures Saturday afternoon should reach the lower and mid 90’s as showers and thunderstorms build. We’ll have about a 30 percent chance for showers and thunderstorms Saturday afternoon. No severe weather is expected but if you are in the backyard or on the beach, you’ll want to head inside if you hear thunder or see lightning.

Showers will linger overnight tonight. We could be left with a few showers Sunday morning and some patchy fog too. After a few quiet hours Sunday morning, afternoon showers and thunderstorms will return with about 40 percent of the area having the chance to get wet. The showers should fall apart as the sun goes down giving us a dry start to Monday, but we’ll keep the 40 percent chance for rain during the afternoon on Labor Day. Neither day is expected to have severe weather but watch for frequent lightning and stronger wind gusts with some of these storms.
