Labor Day Weekend has Daily Thunderstorms

Increased showers and thunderstorms carry us into the Labor Day weekend. We had scattered showers and thunderstorms today but in the days to come, we get more pop up afternoon thunderstorms. Temperatures stay steady and winds stay light from the south. Tonight has calm wind and moderate humidity. Expect just a few showers, with lows in the lower 70s, and some spots picking up patchy fog.

Highs remain in the lower 90s but we’ll see afternoon thunderstorms return tomorrow to cover a quarter or a third of the area. Over the weekend, shower and thunderstorm coverage increases to around 40%. Days will otherwise be partly cloudy.

Expect the same story for Labor Day. Highs near 90 with mainly afternoon showers and thunderstorms, over a third of the area.

The Gulf and Caribbean are quiet. Tropical Storm Fred is moving in the central Atlantic where it will fade.
