Pinpoint Weather: Clouds move in Saturday as showers become possible late Sunday; Labor Day looks mostly dry

Weather Blog

The long holiday weekend has officially arrived!

Saturday starts on the sunny side but as the afternoon progresses, there will be some clouds that will begin to filter in.

Highs on Saturday will range from the 70s in the mountains and into the lower and middle 80s east of the Blue Ridge.

As we get into the day on Sunday, we can expect Partly Cloudy skies. During the afternoon, some showers will begin to push into the area. Those showers will persist off-and-on during the evening and into the overnight hours. Rainfall is not expected to be heavy. More of a nuisance-type showery event is forecast.

Highs will linger into the 70s in the mountains with lower and middle 80s back again on Sunday.

Labor Day could see some lingering showers possible during the morning but by the afternoon, any showers will have exited so any outdoor plans (parades, barbecues, family fun, etc.) should not be impacted.

High temperatures on Labor Day will compare to Sunday’s.

Tuesday is looking dry and a bit warmer with highs in the mid and upper 80s east of the Blue Ridge. Further west, we’re anticipating the upper 70s to near 80.

There is a risk for a few passing showers and thunderstorms on Wednesday as temperatures continue on the mild side.

We do look drier and a bit cooler to wrap up next week.

We are watching Hurricane Larry in the Atlantic. The storm has strengthened into a Category 3 storm as it continues moving generally toward the west-northwest. It’s a storm that Bermuda will need to pay close attention to next week. Projections are that the storm will curve out to sea but will still produce heavy surf and rip currents all up and down the east coast.

So, enjoy the long Labor Day holiday weekend. While we’re not looking completely dry, we’re also not looking at a steady rain event during the period – only some passing showers late Sunday and into very early on Monday.

Enjoy!
