Looking ahead to Labor Day weekend

Good Monday and welcome to the last week of August. That means Labor Day Weekend is almost upon us, and the forecast always climbs a bit on the importance ladder. The closer we get to the big weekend, the worse the weather news gets.

Showers and thunderstorms might try to spoil the party.  The setup for the weekend has changed and now looks to feature a plentiful supply of rain from the Gulf Of Mexico:

I don’t think this is going to be a washout of a weekend, but boomers might interrupt outdoor activities. One of the bigger outdoor events will be the kickoff to the college football season at Commonwealth Stadium. Here’s a look at the very early forecast for the noon start:

The threat of scattered showers and storms should carry us into the first few days of September. The air looks rather muggy, with temps probably a few degrees warmer than normal.

In the short term, steamy air and scattered storms will continue to dominate the weather pattern. Highs will hit the upper 80s to near 90, with locally heavy showers and storms. Sound familiar?

Let’s track any storm that goes up Monday:
