A Cooler, Cloudier Labor Day Weekend

Unseasonably warm conditions hold on for one more day before a noticeably cooldown occurs this weekend. Showers and thundershowers will fire in scattered fashion later this afternoon and into the evening. Saturday will be the more unsettled of the two weekend days with mostly cloudy skies and more scattered showers and thundershowers. Sunday looks mostly dry except for a possible shower. Early cloudiness should give way to some afternoon partial sunshine. Labor Day will feature more afternoon sunshine along with rebounding temperatures.

Forecast Discussion

A backdoor cold front is sliding southward into the state today and will promote a better opportunity for afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. Before that happens, we’ve got another day of unseasonably warm conditions.

An easterly low-level wind flow will develop behind the front, cooling temperatures and increasing cloud cover for the weekend. Saturday will have scattered showers and thundershowers, with a few leftover showers around on Sunday.

Labor Day is looking good as the upslope flow starts to break down and encourages more afternoon sunshine and somewhat warmer temperatures. Shower chances will be small and coverage isolated.

We expect more of the same heading into midweek as temperatures return to above-normal levels. A stronger cold front will approach by next Thursday, enhancing our rain chances by then.
