Mixed Holiday Weather Expected (Aug 30-Sep 1)

Labor Day Weekend should start out amazing today into tomorrow morning. A warm front will approach from the south and increase both temperatures and humidity for the rest of the weekend. Showers and storms are possible Sunday afternoon and especially on Monday. Let’s break it down by day:

Friday should feel heavenly with mostly sunny skies and very dry conditions! Highs will stay in the 70s with light winds out of the east. Overnight lows will then drop back into the 50s and 60s.

Saturday will feature increased humidity and possibly some hazy clouds despite plenty of sun. The warm front will be moving through from the S/SW so that will be your wind direction at 5-15mph. Highs should hover around 80 with overnight lows ranging in the 60s. Just the smallest chance of an isolated shower or thunderstorm.

Sunday will be noticeably warmer with highs well into the 80s. Interior regions should flirt with 90 with the beach a bit cooler. Winds should still be out of the S/SW at 5-15mph. Most of the day should be sunny/partly cloudy but afternoon thunderstorm chances will be increased as the lower atmosphere destabilizes from diurnal surface heating. Combine that with higher dew points and isolated popup storms are likely. Overnight lows should hover around 70.

Labor Day has the best chance for showers and thunderstorms. With three straight days of SW flow from the northern Gulf States region, it should be pretty muggy out. Most model guidance indicates anything from on-and-off afternoon rain/storms to a total washout. Highs should top out around 90 with overnight lows falling back to ~70. Tuesday-forward looks like more of the same as a high pressure-driven ridge in the southern US keeps the heat and humidity flowing our way.
