This is the last holiday weekend of the summer season and the holiday weekend forecast looks very good all the way around. Low humidity and sunshine will dominate the first 2 days of the holiday weekend. Monday Labor Day we see a return to very warm and more humid conditions and that sets us up for hot and humid weather for Tuesday through Thursday of next week.
Dry air and high pressure is building down from New England. You can see the lines of equal pressure or isobars; there a are a few of them With high pressure to the north and lower pressures through the south, there will be a gusty wind from the east northeast today. If you are headed to the shore it means a moderate to high risk of rip currents today so check the marine and beach conditions on the marine forecast page.
By Sunday afternoon the high will be shifting southward and offshore which lessens the wind issues at the shore. It also signals a warm up that will get into full swing on Monday. As far as rain goes it is either well to our north or well to our south. Even clouds will be few and far between this weekend.
By Monday the flow becomes more west southwest which means the hot air of last week begins a return. No cold fronts will be approaching and there will almost no chance of any downpour or thunderstorm. Monday will be another good day with lots of sun but temperatures will be on the climb back up toward the 90 degree mark in some places. Monday will be the first day of what could be another 4 day stretch of temps near or over 90. The next front will not approach until late Thursday or Friday. There could be the threat for some thunderstorms or even a period of rain but that is going to depend on how everything sets up late this week. The hope for rain lies in that next front stalling out for awhile and whether a wave can develop on it and bring rain here. The dryness is getting severe over the area and a solid widespread rain is well overdue. Confidence on this happening right now is not very high. Enjoy the last holiday weekend of the summer season.
