Beautiful Labor Day Holiday Weekend No Rain Through Next Week
The Labor Day holiday weekend is here, the third and final holiday weekend of Summer 2020. Last night a cold front passed and we are spending the day warm and sunny with humidity levels slowly dropping off as we move through the afternoon. Temperatures this afternoon will top in the middle to a few upper 80s. There are no showers or thunderstorms to worry about and I don’t think we will see rain around here through at least Wednesday and possibly through all of next week. September is known for long stretches of rain free weather and it seems that we are following form for the month. Satellite pictures show just a few patchy clouds and the radars can take a 3 day vacation for the most part.
Skies are going to be nice and clear tonight with most lows in the 50s to lower 60 except for mid 60s in the warmer urban settings. Saturday high pressure builds overhead so we will see lots of sunshine, low humidity, and most highs will be in the 70s to a few spots getting close to 80 degrees.
Saturday night will be nice and clear with lows in the mid 50s to lower 60s. Sunday will be mainly sunny with a few passing clouds. Highs Sunday will be in the upper 70s to a few lower 80s.
Sunday night should be clear again with lows in the upper 50s to mid 60s. Monday Labor Day should be no worse than partly sunny. The humidity will still be low but it may come up a notch or two later in the day. It will still be very comfortable with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s with a light breeze from off the ocean as the high moves out to the east.
Next week sees a deep trough in the upper atmosphere dropping into the Plains while a strong upper high builds off the East Coast. This will bring warmer and more humid conditions starting Tuesday and lasting through Friday.
This means some sunshine by day with highs in the 80s each day. The risk for a isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible but they should be very few and very far between. With the trough so far west, the next cold front can’t even get close to us until perhaps next weekend. So enjoy the holiday weekend which will be perfect for all outdoor activities.
