Labor Day 2013 Forecast

It's the beginning of meteorological fall, but it will still feel like summer around here tonight and tomorrow.  Watch out for scattered storms tonight at any time, but they will be most numerous during the evening.  It won't rain everywhere and it won't rain all night, but keep an eye to the sky.  If you hear thunder during your holiday barbeque, be sure to go indoors until it passes.  Any of these storms could produce very heavy downpours, so beware of flash flooding.  Lows will only drop into the low to mid 70s overnight, along with that tropical humidity.

Monday's skies will feature a mixture of hazy sun and clouds.  Scattered thunderstorms are again possible at any time.  The threat for very heavy downpours still exists, probably more so tomorrow than tonight with a little extra moisture in the atmosphere.  If flash flooding does occur, do not drive through any flooded roadways.  The city could end up near 90 for the high tomorrow if enough sunshine does occur, and the tropical humidity will make it feel like the low 90s.

A leftover thunderstorm is possible on Tuesday with a mix of sun and clouds otherwise.  Humidity will come down throughout the day.  The rest of the week looks fantastic with plenty of sunshine and low humidity, just in time for the kids to go back to school.  The great weather will persist right through next weekend.
