Good Friday, everyone. The Labor Day weekend is upon us, and it appears Mother Nature will try to steal the show. I’m tracking the increasing threat of showers and thunderstorms for the next several days.
Let’s start with what’s going on Friday.
Highs should reach the mid- and upper 80s in many areas, with hazy and humid skies. That humidity should lead to a few scattered storms developing this late today. One or two of those might affect high school football games.
This doesn’t look like a repeat of last Friday, but it just takes one storm to cause big problems for games. Here are your tracking tools for the day:
The threat for storms will increase a bit later in the day Saturday. Much of that looks to come after the Cats season opener at Commonwealth Stadium. Here’s the forecast:
It might be a good idea to play it safe and pack a poncho if you’re heading to the game.
Showers and storms will become widespread Saturday night and Sunday. That’s when some tropical moisture will get into the mix, and we will have to watch for locally heavy downpours.
Scattered showers and storms should carry us into Labor Day. I don’t expect it to be a total washout, but it wouldn’t hurt to have backup plans for those cookouts.
Have a great Friday and take care.
